Thanksgiving Day and the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade are symbolic past times for our nation, and they signal the official start of the holiday season.

I’m proud to have been a part of the event in a very special way for the 7th year in a row. The First Responders Children’s Foundation Annual Thanksgiving Day Parade Breakfast is held every year in Bryant Park. 1,300 children and relatives of fallen law enforcement are given the chance at an exclusive front-row view of the parade as well as a delicious breakfast.

This event is so special to me as it does something wonderful for families who have gone through so much for the call of duty. It brings in a lot of sponsorship money for the foundation and is popular due to the VIP access it provides.

I hope you enjoy the photos. 2018 sure was a chilly one… the coldest on record!
