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.

Special Mission

Shootout for Soldiers Canandaigua

Canandaigue, New York - 22 Jul 2017


We have been invited to take part in the opening ceremonies for a event called "Shootout for Soldiers Canandaigua" . We have been asked to stand a flag line during opening ceremonies.

Shootout for Soldiers is a 24 hour lacrosse event benefiting American veterans and also to help raise awareness of what our veterans face each day. There are 24, 1-hour games in a row and a running score is kept between the two teams, Stars and Stripes. Participating teams play in one 1-hour slot during the event and the event is open to men’s and women’s teams of all ages. Part of the proceeds will be going to Blue Star Mother's Chapter 1 and to the Veterans Outreach Center.
This is the very First year this group has done this locally. To find out more about Shoot out for Soldiers Click Here:
