NYC VETERANS DAY PARADE,Abraham Lincoln Brigade banner

Holding the Abraham Lincoln Brigade banner at the NYC Veterans Day parade.

I was proud to interview some of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade members.
During the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), almost forty thousand men and women from fifty-two countries, including 2,800 Americans, traveled to Spain to join the International Brigades to help fight fascism. The U.S. volunteers served in various units (medical, combat and transportation) and came to be known collectively as the Abraham Lincoln Brigade.
