America’s veterans—representing every branch of service and generation of warriors since WWII—to march up Fifth Avenue for the 103rd annual Veterans Day Parade, Friday, November 11, 2022, 12:30 to 3:30 pm rain or shine.
Spectators can view the parade, which steps off at 26th street and Fifth Avenue going north to its endpoint on 47th Street, in person or watch the broadcast airing live and streaming online on WABC-TV from 12:30 to 3 pm.
Produced by the United War Veterans Council (UWVC), the Parade is the nation’s largest commemoration of service, with nearly 300 marching and vehicle units, and 20,000 participants from across America, including veterans, military members, service organizations, youth cadets and marching bands.
The Parade’s Grand Marshal, representing the U.S. Coast Guard–this year’s featured service–is Vincent W. Patton, who served as the Eighth Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard (its highest enlisted position) from 1998 to 2002, when he retired after 30 years of active military service. Master Chief Patton was the first Black American to hold that prestigious role.
“We are excited to once again give New Yorkers the opportunity to salute those who have served our nation,” said Mark Otto, President and Executive Director of the United War Veterans Council.
