Rolling Thunder NY 3 in West Point

P1020557

We had the opportunity to support the Rolling Thunder NY 3 Memorial Ride to Highland Falls (West Point) today.

It was a beautiful sunny day and hundreds of bikes rolled into the quiet hamlet after passing through West Point.

Mayor Joe Donofrio did a superb job as master of ceremonies.  Some veterans from Montrose and Castle Point attended as well as many townspeople.  Bagpipers led the West Point Color Guard down Main Street to the Flag suspended by a West Point Fire Department tower ladder.

Excellent speeches by Gary Scheffmeyer, President of Rolling Thunder, Dave Hansen, President of Rolling Thunder NY 3, a WWII POW veteran and others were warmly received by the crowd.  Veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan were applauded.

It was another beautiful, patriotic day in Highland Falls!

After the service the Bikes rolled out on their way to Stewart Airport where Rolling Thunder NY 3 had the Moving Vietnam Wall assembled.
