Who We Are

Patriot Guard Riders of New York, Inc. (PGRNY) is a non-profit New York corporation organized exclusively for charitable and community service purposes.   PGRNY is affiliated with Patriot Guard Riders, a national organization.    Members of PGRNY must first be members of the Patriot Guard Riders National Organization.

PGRNY is a diverse group of patriots who come together to show support to US service members, veterans, and their families by standing flag lines and providing escorts at memorial services and other events honoring veterans and military personnel.   We do not have meetings, dues or most of the other membership requirements of other organizations.  The only thing we have in common is a deep feeling of appreciation of the sacrifices that our military and first responders have made and continue to make.   Many members also share a love of motorcycles and many are also veterans, but neither is a requirement.

We are a 100% volunteer organization.  Any donations received go directly to the veterans in the form of a plaque to the family at memorial services or as assistance to members of the Armed Services, veterans, families of deployed service members, and Gold Star families in need through our Help on the Homefront (HOTH) program.

Explore the website to learn more about PGRNY and considering joining us in standing for those who stood for us.   

Freedom isn't free, but membership is:   REGISTER

Patriot Guard Riders of New York - Please scroll down to see a message from our National President concerning a very great honor bestowed on the Patriot Guard Riders.  Every one should feel justifiably proud to be a member of our great organization.  The message speaks for itself.  I am honored and proud to be in a leadership position of many of the finest men and women on the planet. 

Masked National Service AwardGood afternoon,

I got a call yesterday from Gen. Carter Ham, CEO of the Association of the United States Army.

He called to inform me the Patriot Guard has been awarded their prestigious "National Service Award".  The award is presented each year to an organization in recognition of exemplary service and enduring support to the American Soldier and the United States Army community.

We are in pretty good company as previous recipients are the Gary Sinise Foundation and the Honor Flight Network.

We've said many times that "It's not about us," and indeed it is not. It's about the heroes and the families we serve. What this award means is that the US Army community has acknowledged our commitment to them, that we cherish them and honor their service and their sacrifices to keep us free.

My voice betrayed my emotion as I accepted this award on behalf of all of our brothers and sisters that stand in the flagline. It was an honor I'll not soon forget.

As always, thank you for what you do.
