The flight is expected to land at 2330 hrs at LIMA (11:30 pm)

There will be a Welcome Home Greeting at the Airport, then a Motorcycle & First Responder escort to the Selden Fire Dept.


All are Welcome to join us at the Airport or on the Escort as the Community celebrates John’s Homecoming.


Boots on the Ground NY will have “The VAC” open at 2215 hrs (10:15PM) where there will be coffee and snacks. We will most likely depart the VAC at 2245 hrs.  If you go directly to the Airport please utilize the parking areas, as we are expecting a heavy turnout of first responder vehicles.

Bring Flags, bring signs, and bring your Patriotism!!


Motorcycle Riders, please remember there is sand on the streets and cages might not be expecting bikes out yet this year, please check your lighting & air pressure, leave hi-beams and spotlights off during escort and please make sure any flags are mounted down tight. We will not have motorcycle road guarding as there will be fire dept. & first responder vehicles managing traffic


Ride Safe and See you Thursday Night!
