Marines march in 2011 New York Veterans Day Parade [Image 1 of 10]

Marines from 6th Communications Battalion, Marine Forces Reserve, marched in the annual New York Veterans Day parade Nov. 11. This year marks the 92nd anniversary of the New York Veterans Day Parade. The parade is hosted by the United War Veterans Council, Inc. on behalf of the city of New York. It is the oldest and largest of its kind in the nation. Since Nov. 11, 1919, the parade has provided an opportunity for Americans and international visitors to honor those who have served in the nation's largest city. Sgt. Dakota Meyer, the recently awarded Marine Medal of Honor recipient, rode in the parade. Major Gen. Melvin Spiese, deputy commanding general, I Marine Expeditionary Force, represented the Marine Corps as one of the reviewing officials of the parade.
