Marines march in 2011 NYC Veterans Day Parade

NEW YORK -- A color guard from 6th Communications Battalion, Marine Forces Reserve, led a marching detail of 200 Marines in the annual New York Veteran’s Day parade, here, Nov. 11. This year marks the 92st Anniversary of The New York City 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 November 11, 1919, the parade has provided an opportunity for Americans and International visitors to honor those who have served, preserving our freedoms and defending our democracy. 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. (Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Randall A.
