Across the nation, Americans are commemorating Veterans Day with parades, wreath-laying ceremonies, monument dedications and other events.
NEW YORK: WOMEN IN SERVICE
The U.S. military's first female four-star general will be a grand marshal at New York City's Veterans Day Parade.
Gen. Ann E. Dunwoody retired last year after a 37-year Army career.
Organizers of the parade up Fifth Avenue have renamed it America's Parade. The commemoration will include a wreath-laying ceremony at the Eternal Light Monument in Madison Square Park.
WASHINGTON, D.C.: TUSKEGEE AIRMEN
The District of Columbia will honor two of the original Tuskegee Airmen with the Congressional Gold Medal for Veterans Day.
