Vets Invited to March in Vet Day Event

Come one, come all, to America's Parade, the largest Veterans Day event -- that is the message from Sean Powers, coordinator for the American Legion Veterans Day Parade contingent in New York City, where the Nov. 11 event is held. "We want to have the most people we can marshal from throughout the Legion Family," said Powers, commander of American Legion New York County. The theme of this year's parade is military women. Participants are encouraged to wear their Legion caps during the 1.3-mile march. Those interested in marching with the Legion Family delegation should send an email stating their intent to parade@americanlegion.com. Powers will post details about the Legion contingency as they become available. For more information, visit America's Parade website at www.americasparade.org.
