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.

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.
