The Patriot Guard Riders are proud to report that for the first time since the inception of the Wreaths Across America program, on December 16, 2017, a Holiday Wreath was placed on every gravesite at the Gerald B.H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery in Schuylerville, NY. The Patriot Guard Riders, along with several thousand community volunteers respectfully placed those wreaths, but much more importantly, took the time to honor and remember over 11,000 of our fallen soldiers, sailors and airmen resting in that place of honor.

We wish to sincerely thank everyone who made that goal a reality, particularly those who contributed via the PGRNY “Three For Two” program. Through that program, fully 100% of your contribution went toward the sponsorship of wreaths, with a total of almost 3,800 wreaths (over 1/3 of the total) provided….a truly outstanding effort.

Now that the bar has been set, we look forward to achieving that goal each and every year going forward, and we are confident that with your generous help and support, we can do just that. Once again, our heartfelt thanks for honoring and remembering our fallen heroes.

Help On The Homefront (HOTH) is a volunteer outreach program that may provide one-time financial support and assistance to U.S. Armed Forces veterans who are experiencing a hardship that is related to a Service Connected disability; whether injury, illness and/or PTSD.  The existence of Service Connected disability must be documented and verified by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and/or the Department of Defense. 

This assistance may also be available to an immediate family member (mother, father, sibling, son or daughter) of a U.S. Armed Forces member who is or qualifies as a Gold Star Family member.  Assistance may also be available to an immediate family member who is, or qualifies as a Blue Star Family member of a deployed active duty soldier who is currently serving in a theater of combat operations.

If these criteria are met and the veteran is experiencing a particular financial hardship, he or she may fill out an application for HOTH Veteran’s Assistance where a determination will be made if he or she may qualify for any financial help.

After reviewing a veteran’s request for assistance, a referral to other agencies for support with counseling, financial management or benefit application may take place.

All cases are reviewed individually and are based on merit.

  • Must have been discharged under other than Dishonorable conditions
