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.

Riders & Patriots:

We have been requested by Barbara Dicker to stand for her husband, S. Mitch Dicker, ATN3, US Navy, Vietnam Veteran and an integral member of the Patriot Guard Riders, especially in Regions 8 & 9. Mitch’s' tour in Vietnam consisted of flying in a plane like a Piper Cessna, with no armament, over enemy areas dropping leaflets and gaining info for the troops. Mitch was very humble and had a fierce desire to stand and honor veterans of this United States.
