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.

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


Thank you.

About the Mission:
PGR members;

We have been given the honor of standing a flag line for one of the Greatest Generation. CBM (Chief Boatswain Mate) Henry J. Karnisky served in the Coast Guard during WWII and has passed at the age of 97 yrs.

This is very short notice but I am hopeful for a respectful turnout by my PGR brothers and sisters.

There will not be any honorable transfer nor escort to cemetery. This is flag line only at the church. Please bring your clean 3X5 flag.
