As we are approaching the holiday season, it's an excellent time to remember our fallen and their ultimate sacrafice; another way to remember them is to sponsor a wreath.  Sponsoring a wreath through Wreaths Across America is easy.  Whether at Saratoga National Cemetery or another cemetery where you wish to have a wreath placed. Just click on the image to enter Wreaths Across America.  Simply click on the DONATE at the bottom of their page.  Thank you.

The Patriot Guard Riders of Eastern New York have once again been granted Group Sponsorship status within the Wreaths Across America organization. So what does our Group Sponsorship status mean? Well for every two wreaths that are ordered - using our group code – Wreaths Across America will donate another wreath - we get 3 for 2.

Below is a special thank you to the Patriot Guard Riders of New York from General Martin E. Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff which was presented to State Captain Dave Kern along with the General's personal challenge coin.  Your dedication to the mission of supporting our men and women in uniform does not go unnoticed.

Dave, tears in my eye’s to this day for the wonderful job you guy’s do escorting our sons and daughters home after their deployment.  I wish I could find the right words to show my gratitude, thank-you just doesn’t seem enough.  I’ve been  awe-stuck by the amount of compassion, organization and humbleness the P.G.R. has shown the night before Thanksgiving when my son came home.  What a thanksgiving treat!   I could go on and on and never feel  satisfied with the thanks I’m trying to express.  My brother-in-law (who is never sentimental) said he’s never felt so proud to be an American as he did that night.  You guy’s caused him to realize that. I am forever grateful and the P.G.R. will be getting a gift from my family as soon as I get my finances together!  Thank-you!

Jim, Good morning and thank you.

The family of Michael Drozd  A passing WW11 veteran, can only say thank you very much for the honors sent to us by The Patriot Guard Riders organization.

Somehow thank you for being there just doesn't seem enough, your men and women stood at attention holding flags in respect of our veteran hero Mike, my father in law. What a great veteran and friend he was to all who served. Mike will be sorely missed by our family and friends and fellow vets. He was a man's man and a credit to the veteran organizations small man with a huge heart. Your organization did us proud. For that we thank you.

Sincerely with heartfelt gratitude
