Day #25 Florham Park, N.J.Send Off Ceremony

Candlelight Vigil in Florham Park, New Jersey

Deputy Chief Patrick P. Montuore speaking about the Memorial Baton our Team presented to him tonight.



Today we had a rest day before continuing out journey to Washington, DC with the entire Police Unity Tour. Breaking down the trailer, cleaning bikes, vehicles and greeting all our friends arriving for the Unity Tour. There is no rest for the weary...

Tonight the Town of Florham Park hosted the Police Unity Tour's 10th anniversary candlelight vigil. A large number of people attended the event. A 20 man Pipe and Drum band marched in to begin. Speakers included Mayor Frank Tinari and Congressman Mario Biaggi. Craig White presented Pat Montuore with an Engraved Memorial Baton and all members of our team were introduced before the crowd. Pat then gave a heart felt speech.

Later Craig Floyd, Chairman of the National Law Enforcement Memorial gave a tremendous speech about the things that the Police Unity Tour has accomplished over the past 10 years.

The Event was concluded with a moving version of "God Bless the USA" to the people all holding lit candles high is the air.

We are now truly united, 400 strong, in our cause as we depart in the morning for NYC Ground Zero...
