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.
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.
- Show sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families, and their communities.
- 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.
