RIDERS!
Sunday October 4th, at O-Dark-Early will be the next Honor Flight Motorcycle Escort.

We will once again have multiple escorts of our Our WW2 Heroes.

I will be working on coordinating tonight, then reaching out to the 4 road captains of each escort and have ride plans out as soon as possible.

But plan on being out on the bike at 0500 ish. Veterans need to be at the airport 0600 (0630 at the latest)

______________________________________________________

Welcome Home -

The WW2 Heroes will be returning from there Honor Flight to the DC Memorials on Sunday evening and we are inviting EVERYONE to join us in giving them the Welcome Home they deserve Long Island style. So pack up the family, tell the neighbors, the local Scouts, get caught talking about it at church, let everyone know. Bring flags, signs and patriotic apparel, lets do this BIG.

We will form lines for the American Heroes to walk through as we applaud, and shout Welcome Home, letting them know how much appreciation we have for the Freedoms they fought for 70 years ago.
Meet up in the Main Terminal by 2100 hrs (9 PM), just look for the crowd. The plane lands at 9:35 PM (2135PM)

Every flight we manage to get the word out a bit more thanks to all of you, so lets make this Welcome Home bigger and better!!

Thank you!!
