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 PGR Members,

Thank you for your presence on July 8th for the renaming of the Oakdale-Bohemia Bridge for my son, Matt. Many of you stood for my son and my family 10 years ago at his wake and funeral, so it was a very special honor for me to have you in attendance at the bridge renaming also. The PGR has always been an organization that defines honor and respect in a way that makes all of us proud to be associated. When I look back over the years at all the home comings, funerals and Veteran events that the PGR has played a special role in, I feel tremendous respect and admiration for all the members that take their valuable time to serve the veteran community. You guys are the best!

Respectfully,

RB

On behalf of my family , I would like to thank you and The Patriot Guard for your dedication to all veterans. It was a privilege for us that you were there. And of course we got to brag on all military personnel. My dad was truly honored by your presence. Thank you again.
 
Sincerely,

To all participants of the Very Short Notice Tuberdyke Mission of 21 July: 
 
Thank you. Having PGR at my brothers funeral was a powerful and moving experience, in what was an absolutely difficult time. It helped us knowing that there was indeed, a far bigger family that stood with us... stoic, understanding and honorable. They never wavered or left until all was said and done.  I hope to be able to help others in the same way, whenever I can. Thank you also, for the information.
Sincerely,
Eric Tuberdyke
