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. 


To sponsor a wreath at Saratoga National Cemetery click HERE.

If you would rather mail in an order, click ORDER FORM.


Thank you.

Please send my family's and my appreciation for the courtesy extended by the NYPGR on the death of my sister;     The family was very impressed by the manner in which the PGR executed the escort, keeping the procession secure and in line, as well as the honor and respect displayed by all the riders before, during and after the services.

My special thx to you for taking the time off from work, Frank for acting as RC and Bob Espo for attending despite his own personal problems.

In my experience, this demonstrates the highest degree of respect, dedication and professionalism that I have seen in a long while.

My prayers go out to all, you are the finest people I know and I am proud to be associated with y'all. If any ever need support down here in SoFla I am here  for you.

Always With Respect;
Richard "Whistler" Little

From the family of Cpl. Jerome D. Ventura,

During our time of sorrow we learned how much our family and friends mean to us. The kindness of the Patriot Guard Riders and your expressions of sympathy will always be remembered by our family.

With love, Cyndi, Bill, Billy and Dylan Ventura.

Dear Frank,

We wish to "Thank All The Patriot Guard Riders" that gave their time so willingly to be with my brother Angelo Zotto at the O>B> Davis Funeral Home on Friday June 3, 2011 and then to escort him to Calverton Cemetary. To have them with us brought so much warmth from the beginning to the end of his journey. I know he was watching and was so proud to be escorted by the  "Patriot Guards."

In Memory of my brother Angelo Zotto---
A little poem to all the "Patriot Guard Riders"

In this busy world,
it's wonderful
that some people
still have the art
of taking time for others--
of giving so much from the heart.

Again thank you so much from the family of Angelo Zotto.

Thank You
George and Angela Wilson

How do we thank you all enough for what you did for the Snyder family yesterday in Cohocton!  Or, for that matter, what you have done all week! Your amazing show of support and respect goes way beyond words.  To see you all standing so proudly to honor her, to shield her family, and to bring a measure of comfort through your caring is something this small community will never forget.  You are truly amazing and giving people.  May God Bless You All!
