NEW YORK (AP) — Organizers say actor Cuba Gooding Jr. will participate in New York City’s Veterans Day Parade.
The United War Veterans Council announced Monday the “Jerry Maguire” actor will ride on a float with members of the Tuskegee Airmen.
It was previously announced five Congressional Medal of Honor recipients will march in the Nov. 11 parade up Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue.
Those medal recipients include Marine Corps veteran Dakota Meyer. President Barack Obama recently awarded Meyer the nation’s top military honor after he saved 36 lives with repeated charges into Taliban gunfire in an Afghanistan battle.
