Organizers of the nation’s largest Veterans Day parade – America’s Parade – in New York City are still encouraging American Legion Family members to participate.
Those interested in marching with the Legion Family delegation should send an email stating their intent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Details about the Legion contingency will be posted online here as they become available.
Legion 9/11 Memorial Post 2001 Commander Sean Powers, coordinator for the Legion Veterans Day Parade contingent, says participants should wear their Legion caps during the 1.3-mile march and dress appropriately. "Dress your best while considering not only the weather conditions but any physical limitations you may have," he advised.
The long-range forecast calls for mild temperatures on Veterans Day in New York City. The high is expected to be 51 with partly cloudy skies and a minimal chance of rain.
Those who are unable to march in the parade can watch it on television. The Nov. 11 event will be broadcast to millions of Americans on Fox Television’s MyNetwork TV from noon until 3 p.m. local time, reaching viewers in 10 of the largest U.S. television markets.
