Yorktown parade held to honor veterans

A crowd filled with gratitude Sunday in Shrub Oak to honor veterans.



For the 14th year, veterans marched in the Yorktown Veterans Day Parade.



They were also recognized in a touching ceremony.



The guest of honor was Vietnam veteran William Rod, who never had a hero's welcome home.



"We had it really tough when we got back, and finally now are starting to get recognition," he said.
