Coney Island Raid

A V-22 Osprey lands in Manhattan near the Brooklyn bridge to transport Marines to Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, N.Y. This is a part of several events conducted during Fleet Week New York. Fleet Week is an opportunity for service members to show the people of New York who the Marine, Navy and Coast Guard team are, what they do, and how committed they are to serving this country. Twenty-one U.S. and coalition ships and more than 6,000 troops will participate in the 25th anniversary of Fleet Week New York, a celebration of the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, May 23-30.
