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.

Honor Mission

Stephen G. Murphy, Veteran
USA Fire - Vietnam
Ontario, New York - 10 Feb 2017



Sadly, one of our own longtime Region 2 members and US Army veteran, Sgt. Steven Murphy passed away on Monday, January 30, 2017 due to complications of a stroke. We have been requested to stand flag line and escort Steve on his final journey.

Steve served proudly and honorably in the US Army and obtained the rank of Sergeant. He took over the family funeral home business and expanded Ontario to Macedon and Palmyra locations. "Murph" joined the PGR in 09 and assisted me in an advisory capacity and stood flag lines and rode many escorts. Steve is also a past member of the ALR and current member of the Radical Pigs MC. Steve also served most of his life with the Ontario Fire dept.

Please come and stand for Steve as you are able.
