We're assisting the United War Veterans Council for a fourth year by recruiting 50 veterans (all branches of service, any geographic area of service) who represent different branches of service, experience, enlisted/officer rank, and affiliations with diverse veteran organizations. These 50 veterans will carry the 30'x50' Ground Zero Flag at the head of the 2019 NYC Veterans Day Parade ("America's Parade").
Details are still being finalized (including report time and precise location), but please plan on spending the morning and early afternoon with us.
NOTE: Veterans only, please.
Please wear apparel (t-shirt, sweatshirt, jacket, hat, etc.) showing your affiliation. This can be your branch of service, your preferred VSO, or another veteran organization. Military uniforms (worn in accordance with military regulation) are also welcomed. Together, we will represent the broad diversity of NYC's veterans community.
