Silent. American Legionnaires invade New York for its biggest convention. The veterans of ’17 are in town from every state. Broadway surrenders to the multitude. And the does Legion have fun!! Dan Doherty succeeds Colmery as Commander. The parade on Fifth Ave is the biggest ever held. Colorful bands from everywhere. 250,000 of the Legion pass in review. New York’s millions turn out to cheer the veterans. On and on– the thousands pass. On– into the nineteenth hour.
