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.

Thank you.

The family of Paul M Vaughn has requested the participation of the Patriot Guard Riders in his military honors funeral. Paul, 71, a longtime resident of Hudson Falls and more recently of Victory Mills, passed away Monday, August 21, 2017 at Glens Falls Hospital.

Paul was a proud US Navy Vietnam Era Veteran. I worked for Paul one summer when I was 17 years old working on a trash route for the summer folks around Lake George. After that Paul owned and operated a couple different business's a hotel and bar. Then he went on for 29 years working for the post office in Saratoga.
