Service members and their care givers and families are invited to participate in Warrior Appreciation Day on July 22. Everyone will be picked up at noon in Manhattan to go to Fire Island (or they can meet at the ferry). They will be welcomed at the dock and embark via private ferry across the bay, escorted by fireboats and observe a fireboat/water cannon display in their honor. Following the ferry trip, the group will be honored at a brief ceremony and hosted for dinner at the Ocean Beach Fire Department. Transportation will be provided back to the point of departure in Manhattan at the end of the evening.
Members of the public can buy tickets through the Ocean Beach FD on Fire Island to attend the ceremony/appetizers at the dock. Full event attendance still open for post-9/11 SMs, GSFs, etc.
