Marching On Two Wheels: American Iron in the NYC Veterans Day Parade

By Ken McCurdy, American Iron Magazine

What an honor it was riding a new Victory Gunner in “America’s Parade” in New York City on Veteran’s Day, Tuesday, November 11, 2014. As a Navy vet myself, it was surreal and humbling to witness the spectators cheering for the participants in the parade as we traveled up Fifth Avenue from 26th to 52nd streets. We had the easy part, of just riding motorcycles; the real heroes were all around us, including the more than 700 members of the IAVA marching behind us.

Thank you to Victory and the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America for allowing me the honor to be part of this great event. Look for a full story in issue #321 of American Iron Magazine, on newsstands February 3, 2015.


Through its The Road Home campaign, Victory donates $500 to the IAVA for every Victory motorcycle sold. Moreover, ALL military and service personnel – including police, fire, and emergency medical men and women – receive $1000 cash back when they buy a new Victory.
