NYC Group Tours is the travel sponsor of The Band of Pride Tribute™, The NYC and San Diego Veterans Day Parades.

For over 18 years, Melinda Marinoff and her team at  NYC Group Tours have been dedicated to providing purpose – filled educational travel for students.  NYC Group Tours prides itself on a  high level of customer service, offering safe and meticulously planned tours. All tour experiences focus on performance opportunities.

Band of Pride Tribute and NYC Group Tours are designated commemorative partners with the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration, a national program conducted under the leadership of the Department of Defense to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. The commemoration program includes activities to thank and honor veterans of the Vietnam War, including those held as prisoners of war or listed as missing in action, for their service and sacrifice on behalf of the U.S. and to thank and honor the families of these veterans. We are honored to be part of this historic commemoration.

Melinda believes participating in the Veterans Day Parade programs not only helps the way students see the world, but gives them an opportunity to change it. It is a way to celebrate service and pay tribute to our veterans who have served and sacrificed for the freedoms we hold dear.
