State Police Were Large Presence at the Patriot Highlander

Written By Editor on 9/20/16 | 9/20/16

The annual Patriot Highlander was held on Saturday September, 17, 2016, in Cobleskill New York. This annual event held at the Sunny Knolls Farm, encompasses a running course with numerous obstacles including; rope climbs, walls and a swim. There are a number of classes including multiple classes for children. The proceeds of this event support local wounded veterans through the Wounded Warriors Fund. The Patriot Highland Challenge is an independent non-profit organization.

This year’s event once again had a large State Police presence as they served to escort wounded veterans to the event, provided traffic control and even had teams of members that entered and raced competitively. Each year State Police Members from Troop G show up in force to support this wonderful event, whether as competitors, volunteers or in their official work capacity. As this event continues to grow in size and popularity each year, the State Police will assuredly continue their support of this wonderful event as they have since its inception.

Curious the perspective this article brings. With all due respect, the State Police had a presence but not what I would call "in force". Several participants, a couple volunteers and an escort for the Veterans of Honor. We love and respect our Law Enforcement family and greatly appreciate any of their support, but the event is blend of many people from many backgrounds for sure.

Correction for the editor: proceeds from the event are not at all or in any way associated with the "Wounded Warrior Fund" Patriot Highland Challenge is an independent non-profit organization.
