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

David Tsui, Veteran
USA - Vietnam
New York City, New York -25 Feb 2017

ABOUT THE MISSION:
We have been asked by Arthur Tsui, his son, to Stand in honor of his Father David Tsui, a proud American that served his country in Vietnam.

When speaking to Officer Arthur Tsui of the NYPD about his father, he mentioned that after growing up as an orphan in China, becoming a citizen and serving in Vietnam, being a very Active member of the American Legion, his father always showed his appreciation and love for this country. He was the type of guy who would stand in his living room with his hand over his heart when the National Anthem was played on TV before a Sporting event. He passed away of Cancer fromSept 11th.
