Victory parade for U.S. women’s soccer team

Charles Lindbergh was awarded one after his solo transatlantic flight, and then-Gen. Dwight Eisenhower was honored with one for his leadership of the Allied Forces. Astronauts, world leaders, a pope and war veterans all have been honored with ticker-tape parades in New York City’s famed Canyon of Heroes. Now, the Women’s National Team is the center of the celebration on Wednesday, commemorating its World Cup win in France on Sunday.
