The Sunday before Veterans Day is set aside in Queens each year for a parade down Metropolitan Avenue filled with bands, vintage cars and a showing of the colors.
The parade’s grand marshal, Joseph Martino, eschewed the usual limo ride for the front seat of a World War II-era troop transport.
All it takes is a flag and a wave to become a part of the parade.

Veterans Day is appraoching, but the annual Queens parade honoring the men and women who served our country already took place.

The parade down Metropolitan Avenue in Middle Village was full of flags, scout troops, vintage military vehicles and the gratitude of all who came out to cheer.

Here are some photos from the parade.
