We Love A Parade:
Veterans Day, New York, November 11, 2014

Veterans Day, an American holiday, honors the work and sacrifice of those who served in the armed forces throughout the nation’s history.

New York City’s annual parade is reportedly the largest Veterans Day event in the United States.

Its theme this year, “Land of the Free, Home of the Brave,” commemorated the 200th anniversary of America’s national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
