As with other holidays this year, Veterans Day ceremonies around the United States were different as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The Associated Press reports that in New York City, a parade with no spectators traveled through Manhattan as part of the 101-year tradition of veterans marching on Fifth Avenue.

President Donald Trump visited Arlington National Cemetery while President-elect Joe Biden placed a wreath at the Korean War Memorial in Philadelphia.
