On Friday, Nov.11, Fordham’s military community came together to march in New York’s 103rd annual Veterans Day Parade. ROTC students, student veterans, alumni, administrators, friends, and family joined fellow veterans to honor and thank American veterans for their willingness to serve and sacrifice for their country.

The parade is the country’s largest Veterans Day event, bringing together roughly 20,000 participants including 300 marching and vehicle units, along with marching bands, floats, and more. Participants were led by this year’s Grand Marshal, Vince M. Patton III, the Eighth Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard, as they marched up Fifth Avenue from 26th to 45th Street.
