NY Veterans Day Parade 2010
New York is home to the largest Veterans Day Parade in the nation. This year over half a million people either marched or watched.
This year’s theme was “Freedom is not Free” and Korean War Veterans were singled out for recognition.
A special contingent of Korean Veterans joined the parade to Thank the U.S. for its continued support.
The light blue jackets in the following video are worn by U.S. Korean War Veterans:
Fifth Avenue was packed with marchers while crowds lined the sidewalks to cheer them on!
Here is a video to give you a taste of what it was like. The band in this video is the Seaman High School Band from Topeka, Kansas.

The Silent Majority New!
A Buffalo News commentator visiting New York City for a Buffalo Sabres hockey game had this to say
New York always loves a parade, and the Veterans’ Day parade went past my Fifth Avenue hotel for four hours. I saw the start at 11:30 a.m., and when I came back at 3:30 p.m. after my day on the island, it was just wrapping up. That’s a lot of drumming and marching and waving. Among the final groups was the Guardian Angels, and it was cool to see Curtis Sliwa posing for pictures and shaking hands with folks.
