Trooper Davis' Remains Escorted To Fort Drum

Trooper Davis' Remains Escorted To Fort Drum

Posted: Updated:

Only a handful of police cars escorted the remains of Trooper Joel Davis from a Watertown funeral home to Fort Drum, where his calling hours and funeral will be held.

That's in contrast to the dozens of police vehicles that brought the body of the fallen trooper from Syracuse to Reed and Benoit Funeral Home earlier this week.

7 News anchor Jeff Cole reported live at noon from in front of the funeral home, just after the procession left for Fort Drum.

You can see his report in the video.

Calling hours for members of law enforcement will start at 3 p.m. Friday at Fort Drum's Magrath Sports Complex.

Calling hours for the public start at 4 p.m. People who want to attend must use the 4th Infantry gate off State Route 26. Signs will guide people from routes 3 and 11.

Post officials say no ID is needed to enter Fort Drum for the calling hours or Saturday's funeral.

That funeral starts at 1 p.m. and will also be at the sports complex.

The funeral will be carried live on 7 News.
