In the Home With Honor Parade, over 150,000 marched a two mile parade route through Times Square, New York City, to salute 1000 servicemen seated in a reviewing stand. There were 100 brass bands in the parade to welcome our GI’s home. This spectacular event – on the day the war ended – was completely ignored by much of our nation’s news media.
Here is an April 6, 1973 newspaper article about the Home With Honor Parade. Below are photos from the grand event.
