The Patriot Guard Riders are proud to report that for the first time since the inception of the Wreaths Across America program, on December 16, 2017, a Holiday Wreath was placed on every gravesite at the Gerald B.H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery in Schuylerville, NY. The Patriot Guard Riders, along with several thousand community volunteers respectfully placed those wreaths, but much more importantly, took the time to honor and remember over 11,000 of our fallen soldiers, sailors and airmen resting in that place of honor.

We wish to sincerely thank everyone who made that goal a reality, particularly those who contributed via the PGRNY “Three For Two” program. Through that program, fully 100% of your contribution went toward the sponsorship of wreaths, with a total of almost 3,800 wreaths (over 1/3 of the total) provided….a truly outstanding effort.

Now that the bar has been set, we look forward to achieving that goal each and every year going forward, and we are confident that with your generous help and support, we can do just that. Once again, our heartfelt thanks for honoring and remembering our fallen heroes.

Mission Statement:

Patriot Guard Riders of New York, Inc. (PGRNY) is a 100% volunteer, Federally registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, which ensures dignity and respect at memorial services and other events honoring Fallen Military Heroes, First Responders, Active Military Personnel, and honorably discharged veterans.

Vision:

Patriot Guard Riders of New York, Inc. is a group of patriots from across the state. We have one thing in common besides motorcycles. We have an unwavering respect for America's freedom and security.

We don't care what you ride or if you a ride, what your political views are, or whether you're a hawk or a dove. It is not a requirement that you be a veteran. It doesn't matter where you're from or what your income is. The only prerequisite is Respect.

Our main mission is to attend the funeral services of fallen American heroes as invited guests of the family. Each mission we undertake has two basic objectives.

  1. Show sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families, and their communities.
  2. Shield the mourning family and their friends from interruptions created by any protester or group of protesters.

We accomplish the latter through strictly legal and non-violent means.

The Patriot Guard Riders of New York will participate in activities which honor and show respect for all military members and families of the military members, past and present. This may include financial assistance which these military and veteran military families may need.

To those of you who are currently serving and fighting for the freedoms of others, at home and abroad, please know that we are backing you. We honor and support you with every mission we carry out, and are praying for a safe return home for all.

Our veterans are in need!
