Vets week to march on

Not even Sandy will stop celebrations in New York

Not even Hurricane Sandy could derail the mission of the inaugural Veterans Week NYC celebration.

The events skedded to unfold Wednesday through Nov. 14 will proceed as planned dispute the large-scale disruptions in the area left in Sandy’s wake.

Only a few minor scheduling changes have been made to the weeklong (Nov. 7-14) celebration, according to Veterans Week NYC chairman Gerry Byrne, who is vice chairman of Penske Media Corp., parent company of Variety.

“As New York continues to rebound from the devastating impact of Hurricane Sandy, veterans from across the region are pitching in to help our region recover — both literally and emotionally — from this incredible storm,” Byrne said. “While some events will be rescheduled, it will not deter us from celebrating and honoring our veterans and active duty service personnel in a manner befitting their service.”

The 93rd annual New York City Veterans Day Parade, set for Nov. 11, serves as the centerpiece for Veterans Week. Other events open to the public include a Patriots Row street fair, a Band of Pride concert in Times Square and an art festival highlighting works from vets and military artists.

Vets and their families are also invited to a host of special events, including a screening of K. Lorrel Manning’s vet-themed pic “Happy New Year” and the Bob Woodruff Foundation’s Stand Up for Heroes concert at the Beacon Theater on Thursday. That show will feature Bruce Springsteen, John Mayer and Roger Waters, among others, and be made available as a live stream via Remind.org and Vetnethq.com. Waters will perform with a band comprising military vets.

Other Veterans Week activities, such as the Wounded Warrior Employment & Technology Day at Google, emphasize networking and civilian job opportunities.
