The mission of the United War Veterans Council is to honor and serve America’s veterans.
We are dedicated to ensuring that the public always embraces its commitment to provide all veterans and their families with the care, recognition and opportunities they have rightfully earned.
We work to achieve this goal by: Supporting and promoting a wide range of initiatives that provide vital services to our veterans community (including health & wellness and legacy & education programs).
Raising positive awareness and increase understanding of the needs of our veterans, military service members and their families through major public events and promotional activities, including the New York City Veterans Day Parade, the largest event of its kind in the nation.
Uniting veterans groups, community organizations, city, state and federal agencies, local businesses, major corporations and the general public behind efforts to serve veterans of all eras.
On the 74th anniversary of the end of the Battle of Iwo Jima, The United War Veterans Council (UWVC) announced that it has chosen WABC-TV, the #1 station in New York and the nation’s most watched television station, for carriage of the 2019 and 2020 New York City Veteran Day parades.
