MONTROSE, N.Y. (AP) - A flotilla honoring military veterans is touring communities along the Hudson River.

Saturday’s event is the fifth annual flotilla hosted by a Hudson Highlands yacht club to honor veterans, Wounded Warriors, Gold Star families and Purple Heart recipients.

It will start in northern Westchester County and pass West Point en route to its final stop at the Newburgh waterfront in Orange County. Organizers at the Cortlandt Yacht Club are inviting other boat and yacht clubs to participate and asking waterfront communities to show their support.

The flotilla is scheduled to leave the Cortlandt Yacht Club at 11 a.m. and make stops in Peekskill, Highland Falls, Garrison, West point, Cold Spring and Newburgh.
