The United States Air Force is the 2017 NYC Veterans Day Parade’s Featured Service.
This is the 70th Anniversary of the Air Force’s birth as an independent service branch (1947 – 2017). It is also marks the centennial of American combat aviation, dating back to World War I.
We are proud to honor Air Force veteran and American icon Buzz Aldrin as this year’s Grand Marshal. In addition, we will be welcoming key representatives of the Air Force’s senior leadership to this year’s Parade.
