PIX11 was live at the New York City Veterans Day Parade to honor the service and personal sacrifice of the women and men enlisted in our Armed Forces.
The largest Veterans Day event in the nation, Sunday’s parade featureed tens of thousands of marchers, including more than 300 units.
This year’s parade commemorated the centennial of the end of World War I in 1918. The United States Army is this year’s featured military branch. As always, the Marines, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard were also represented.
Together the United War Veterans Council and PIX11 bring the stories of veterans to the broader public emphasizing the importance of service and personal sacrifice.
PIX11 provided full coverage of the parade from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., with PIX11 News anchors Tamsen Fadal and Kori Chambers on site from Fifth Avenue, as well as senior correspondent Marvin Scott from the parade route.
Marchers representing veterans of all eras, military units, civic and youth groups, businesses and high school bands from across the country traveled up Fifth Avenue from 26th to 46th streets. The route is 1.2 miles, and takes approximately 30 ~ 35 minutes.
The parade is set to start at 11 a.m. and airs until 2 p.m. You can watch it live on PIX11 News, on PIX11.com and the station’s Facebook page, and on Military.com .
