Veterans Day Parade New York City 2008

In honor of our brave vets, I went to the Veterans Day Parade on Fifth Avenue today and took a few shots during my lunch break. I was happy to see that there were even more spectators this year than last year's parade, which was just as wonderful.

The lady in this wonderful car is the nurse who appeared in the famous photo taken at the end of World War II kissing the sailor in Times Square.


Here is the slide show!

I'm SO Glad you were able to get there and capture some of the spirit of the parade on Fifth Avenue!

I was afraid you weren't going to make it this year!

I posted a link in my report.

Those pictures could have been taken at nearly any Veteran's Day Parade. All of those elements were in our parade out here on the West Coast. Too bad I was busy trying to get everything lined up for the parade, or I would have taken pictures myself.
