New York's Fighting 69th St. Patrick's Day Parade

NEW YORK -- Soldiers from the New York Army National Guard's 1st Battalion, 69th Infantry celebrate Saint Patrick's Day in Manhattan in leading the citywide parade up Fifth Avenue past Saint Patrick's Cathedral. The battalion celebration included the homecoming Freedom Salute for more than 300 recently returned veterans from Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan where the Soldiers served as Afghan army and police mentors or security forces for the embedded training teams. The unit, famous throughout the Army as the "Fighting 69th" from its combat actions in the Civil War, has led the New York City Saint Patrick's Day parade for the past 158 years. Photo by Lt. Col.
