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.

 

Thank you.

Special Mission

Jason Johnston Scholarship Fund Dice Run
USA
Albion, New York - 19 Aug 2017


ABOUT THE MISSION:

We have been requested to participate in the 3rd Annual Jason Johnston Scholarship Fund Dice Run, which the PGRNY has been a part of the past 2 years. The 125-mile Run benefits a Scholarship set up for Albion High School seniors, and is administered by the American Legion.
Specialist Jason Johnston was 24 when he was killed in Afghanistan in the War on Terror on Dec. 26, 2009. Specialist Johnston was on his second deployment as a Paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne. He completed a 13-month deployment in 2008, and returned in October 2009, where he was killed by a roadside bomb the day after Christmas. The PGRNY stood for U.S. Army SPC Johnston and his family for 3 days in early January, 2010. As he did last year, 82nd Airborne Veteran Joe Joyce will proudly lead this Mission.
