Veterans Day Parade 2012 NYC Chinatown

I want to personally thank those individuals who participated in this year's parade: Jason Tom, Raymond Tom, Alexander Tang, Bayer Lee, Henry Hom, Harold Moy, Justin Moy, Yin Leung and Jimmy's 15 month son. Veterans day is an important day to celebrate as Veterans are one important aspect of this society. So, whenever you see a Veteran, do say "Thank you" to him or her. It is not just Veterans day where we thank those who serve and protect this Nation, it is everyday to give them the recognition.

Here are some pictures from the parade:
