NEW YORK -- Sgt. Dakota Meyer, the most recent Medal of Honor recipient, participated in the 92st Anniversary of The New York City Veterans Day Parade, here, Nov. 11. Meyer is the only living Marine to be awarded the Medal of Honor for actions since Vietnam. In 2009, he made multiple trips into an intense firefight to try and save members of his team. The parade is hosted by the United War Veterans Council, Inc. on behalf of the City of New York. It is the oldest and largest of its kind in the nation. Since November 11, 1919, the parade has provided an opportunity for Americans and International visitors to honor those who have served in the nation’s largest city. Major Gen. Melvin Spiese, Deputy Commanding General, I Marine Expeditionary Force, represented the Marine Corps as one of the reviewing officials of the parade. (Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Randall A.
