JOIN LONG ISLAND IN WELCOMING SOLDIERS FROM THE 10TH MOUNTAINS 1/71 CAV TO LONG ISLAND AS WE ESCORT THEM FROM FORT DRUM TO SHELTER ISLAND.

PLEASE BRING SIGNS & FLAGS, OUR MANORVILLE STAGING WILL BE THE 7-11 ON CR-111, JUST SOUTH OF THE EXWAY.

We should be arriving between 4:30 and 5 pm. and will be at this stage to approx. 5:30 pm, for those greeting the Troops please try to be in place by 1630 hrs (4:30pm)

Any motorcycles are free to join us at this stage and escort with us to Shelter Island, for some riders they will have over 700 miles on this escort by this point.

The South Ferry will be giving all escorting rider free passage on and off the island, and the American legion Post will be open.

Please share this and lets show the Troops how much Long Island Appreciated their Service.

The weather is looking great for tomorrow escorts and staging’s. Please everyone ride Safe.

Mike Davis from the Red Knights will be organizing the staging here for riders, please follow any directions from him and also from  PO Chris Drake of Shelter Island Police. We will be having a full police & first responder escort from Manorville to Shelter Island.

For those that will be with us on the escort on the Long Island Expressway please be careful as they have been working on the lanes at night and have milled up a section of roadway. We have alerted NYPD, NCPD & SCPD and hopefully will have some assistance with traffic.

I will update the Boots on the Ground NY Facebook page as well as my personal one  along the route while at fuel stops.
