Stephen Burns

Class of 1976

Stephen Burns ’76, retired New York State Police Officer (MTAPD), hosted the first 9/11 Marine Flotilla Parade in New York Harbor this year in honor of the 20th Anniversary of the events of September 11, 2001. Two parade formations of recreational boaters – one from Long Island Sound and one from the Atlantic Ocean – converged in Upper Bay near the Statue of Liberty and entered the Hudson River to pay tribute to the 2,977 victims of 9/11 and to those that have since succumbed to illnesses as a result of the tragedy. The parade of boaters slowed down to pay homage to the Freedom Tower and then proceeded to the U.S. Intrepid, where NYPD, NYS Police and NJ State Police helicopters flew over the parade of boaters to show their support.

Stephen is also the Founder and President of the 9/11 Recovery Agencies Artificial Reef Commemoration Project, Inc. The main focus of the project is to create two artificial reefs in memory of the 9/11 victims in New York waters.
