About United War Veterans Council (UWVC)
The United War Veterans Council was revived in 1985 by a group of Vietnam veterans, initially for the purposes of salvaging the New York City Veterans Day Parade, which was on the verge of extinction. Today, that Parade has grown into America’s Parade - the largest awareness- raising event in the nation, drawing tens of thousands of participants and hundreds of thousands of spectators. Going forward, the UWVC is being led by the latest generation of Iraq, Afghanistan and Post-9/11 veterans. The organization’s goal is to ensure that the UWVC will continue to honor, support and serve veterans for years to come.
