Good morning,

I want to express my gratitude to the members of the Patriot Guard who supported the burial ceremony of my father John McMahon, who was an Army veteran from WWII.  The date was 12/31/2018 and they greeted me on my arrival at Lakeside Charlie Curtin Funeral parlor in West Seneca.  I am sure this was a busy time for the men and women who came out to honor my dad and it was time around the holiday they could have spent with family, for that I am thankful.  God bless to your great group and all the best to your members in the New Year!  One thing I have learned from my father is that freedom is not free.

My name is Arlene Weber the wife of Edward Weber, a proud Vietnam veteran. He service as a medic.

My family, friends and my husband appreciate and admire your commitment to Vietnam Vets. Your service at my husband’s funeral and burial comforted me greatly. We received safe passage both at church and during the funeral procession. You stayed throughout the cemetery service as well which meant so much. You have my gratitude and appreciation.

I have witness your service at funerals in the past and was so happy to see you at my husband’s. I know Edward Weber would have appreciated it too.


Hello Dave,

I was just going through my email contacts and found yours. I thought I would send you an email since it has been almost 5 years since you and the Patriot Guard Riders helped me to get through a really rough time in my life and helped me to stay focused on a direction.
I am not certain if you realize how much you and the organization helped me, but my marriage was saved, my life was spared and I am doing okay a few years later.  Yes, I still deal with my PTSD and have hard times and it's rough on me and my family, but we get through it.
I just wanted to take the time to reach out to you and the Patriot Guard Riders and say Thank You for standing by my side when I needed help.  You guys do so much to help us Veterans and it should be made known how much you all are appreciated. If you would be so kind as to pass this Thank You on to everyone else in the organization.
Thanks again for all that you guys do!
With love and respect
