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.

Thank you.

Hi Jim and Alice,

I just wanted to send you both a quick note to thank you and the whole pgr for your time and efforts to help me and my family honor my grandfather on his passing.

It is never easy saying goodbye to someone you love and who meant so much to so many, but having people like you willing to take time out of your busy lives to honor someone you've never met, helps us remember that his life and his sacrifices meant something not only to us, his family and friends, but to the entire country.

Thank you for all you do. Please know how much I truly appreciate you and the PGR.

Sincerely,
Donna Ehresman

Dear Jim and all the PGNY,   

I can't thank you enough for the wonderful welcome you gave my grandson Ronan.  It was something I will never forget and I know he will never forget either.  There are no words to describe how wonderful your people are.   Thank you, thank you, thank you. 

Ronan's grateful Grandmother,
Cathleen Johnson

Dear Jim,

Your people were incredible!  They conducted themselves with professionalism and pride and were a truly wonderful part of my son's homecoming.  Our family cannot thank you enough for the stunned look on Ronan's face as he was escorted by 18 decked out bikes and welcomed home by flags and cheers!  It will most certainly be a day he will never forget and a day we will be forever grateful for on so many levels.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to every one of your members for their time, effort and patriotism.

Sincerely,
Jenn Seltenreich

Jim,

Want to let you know how grateful my family is for the tremendous show of support for my brother-in-law’s funeral escort on Friday. I’ve participated in many escorts, but this is the first time I’ve been on the receiving side. With all of my experience I still wasn’t prepared for the overwhelming sense of gratitude my family and I felt for those who rode in the escort and/or stood the flag line at Calverton. I how have an even stronger sense of the importance of our mission. All I can say is THANK YOU and may GOD bless all those who participate in the PGR.

Sincerely,
Steven Frank
