THE 2017 PHILADELPHIA VETERANS DAY PARADE

Post & Photos by Jack McIntyre.

Today was a special day for me. Being a former Marine, joining ten thousand of my Military brothers, especially bringing hundreds of Motorcycles into the mix, is right up my alley. We all gathered in Center City Philly , the weather called for morning rain, but God had other ideas in mind & sent us some sun & warmer winds as the hours passed by. It was a gathering that involved motorcycles obviously, but what aren’t in my images are the large groups of veteran’s organizations, prior military, marching bands, and more. I can only post just so many images, so please enjoy what I have shared and visit our great city, we do these types of events all the time, and because of that I love living in Philadelphia. For lot’s of details on this organization, please visit: http://www.phillyveteransparade.org/
