Thursday is Veteran's Day in the US, and the Veteran's Day Parade! The day honors all those who have served in the military.
Along Fifth Avenue between 23rd and 59th Streets, veterans and floats will celebrate the occasion. The parade has taken place every year in New York since 1929. Crowds of people line the route and cheer the veterans and marching bands.
The parade will be televised live on NBC, and the coverage starts at noon. If you have a chance, tune in. It can be quite moving to see generations of proud veterans marching in their uniforms, and generations of onlookers giving their heartfelt thanks.
