EarthCam viewers can watch the oldest and largest parade of its kind in the nation live, this year themed, “Freedom is Not Free,” and hosted by the United War Veterans Council, Inc. on behalf of the City of New York. Since November 11, 1919, the The New York City Veterans Day Parade has provided an opportunity for Americans and International visitors to honor those who have served, preserving our freedoms and defending our democracy. From its modest beginnings, a year after the Armistice was signed that concluded World War I, the parade has grown not just in scope and scale, but in national importance. The NYC Veterans Day Parade has endured and been a constant through war times and times of peace.

The Parade has always been a reflection of New York City's sense of patriotism, community spirit and respect for The Flag.
