    WWII Veteran Honor Flight Escort


    Attention Motorcycle Riders.

    On Sunday Sept 25th there will be multiple motorcycle escort rides to escort World War 2 Veteran Hero’s to the Long Island MacArthur Airport in Ronkonkoma. This has been going on for many years twice a year, when there is an Honor Flight scheduled. We are presently at three escorts each flight, the stage in Hampton Bays, Floral Park and Ronkonkoma, and escort Veterans close to those points.

    We need to add more escorts, there are 50 VETERANS on each flight, talk you your buddy riders, talk to your clubs or riding groups. These escorts happen at 0500, so it does not interfere with any other rides or events. Get back to me as soon as you can, if you can organize a group and captain a Veteran to the airport from his home. It is a truly amazing experience, the Veterans are our Living History, and they won’t be around for much longer, show them your appreciation, say thank you in an amazing way.

      Attention all my Riders and Honor Flight Supporters.

      This September for the motorcycle escorts I plan on choosing Veterans that don’t have family or a ride to the Airport.

      Right now that count is 5 WW2 Veterans. And spread throughout Long Island

      So my plan is to have a few bikes and cage for each of those 5 Veterans. But i need support to get this done, we have been doing 3 escorts each flight the past few.

      the date of the next flight is September 25th - Sunday. 0500 ish starts.

      We usually have a group running from Floral Park, Hampton Bays and Ronkonkoma. I need 2 more riders to step up that could wrangle up a few more riders.

      The Veterans I am concerned with this flight live in Shirley, Commack, Sayville, Oceanside & Merrick.
