Today is Veterans Day and the final day USS New York (LPD 21) will be in port NYC. Her Sailors and Marines will partake in the City's annual Veterans Day events, to include the Mayoral breakfast at Gracie Mansion, the Eternal Light Monument Ceremony at Madison Square Park and the Veterans Day Parade that struts up Fifth Avenue. If you are in the City and haven't stopped by already, she will be open for one last block of general public visitation from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Pier 88.
One last hoorah for NEW YORK and her crew. I hope you can make it.
