This event is honor of James D. McNaughton, a New York City Police Officer who was killed in Iraq. Jimmy was a Staff Sergeant with the Army Reserve's 306th Military Police Battalion, based out of Uniondale, Long Island. Coming from a family of police officers, he joined the NYPD a little over 9 years ago as a member of the first Police Academy class to graduate after 9/11. He was assigned to Transit Bureau, District 2 in Lower Manhattan. He reported for duty in the Army on October 4th, 2002. On August 2nd, 2005, Jimmy's Unit was assigned a dangerous mission in which was between him and a couple other Sergeant's. Jimmy volunteered over the other soldiers because they had children and he knew of the severity of the mission. While on this mission, Jimmy was training an Iraqi officer up in a tower and was struck by a sniper. James McNaughton, 27, was the first New York City Cop to give his life for his country as a soldier in the line of duty while serving in Iraq.
The event itself, will take place on Saturday afternoon, January 19th, 2013, at Mulcahy's Music Hall in Wantagh, NY, from 1pm to 8pm. There is a $20 donation in which all the proceeds will be donated to multiple great charities - The Wounded Warrior Project, 9-1-1 Veterans, The James McNaughton Foundation and in the light of the recent events here on Long Island, we will be helping out the victims of Hurricane Sandy. The Wounded Warriors Project seeks to assist those men and women of our armed forces who have been severely injured during the conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other locations around the world. The 9-1-1 Veterans Organization assists those returning from the Global War on Terrorism as well as those who served in other eras. The James McNaughton Foundation helps to provide scholarships to men and women who serve in the NYPD.
