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.”
Jeff Day, an independent photographer based in New York City, documents city life celebrations and the renewal of historical tradition in contemporary voice in the streets. He is completing two books, New Orleans Black and White and New York Street. A lifelong sailor, Jeff has also documented the water’s edge and shore towns of New York, New England, the Gulf Coast, and Eastern Spain.
