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.

Memorial Mission

Let's Roll! / Mission 22 - 16th Anniversary 9/11 Tribute

Rochester, New York - 09 Sep 2017


ABOUT THE MISSION:

We are approaching the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 attack on the United States. With that "Operation Patriot" has again invited the Patriot Guard Riders to lead their Let's Roll! / Mission: 22 - 16th Anniversary 9/11 Tribute.

Registration 9:00 am with Kick Stands Up 11:00 am
Riders $20.00 Passengers $10.00
They will be registering you as you arrive on your bike. Please be prepared for that.
This ride attracts a lot of riders and we expect a large turn out.
The Patriot Guard will have prearranged parking but if you can arrive early that will make it a lot easier as we expect other Motorcycle Clubs to also share that parking.
The proceeds this year will be going to Veterans Outreach Center's Veteran Suicide Prevention programs.

MISSION: 22
In 2013, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs released a study that covered suicides from 1999 to 2010, which showed that roughly 22 veterans were dying by suicide per day, or one every 65 minutes. Some sources suggest that this rate may be undercounting suicides. We need to help.

* Escorted by Fire, Police, Military & PGR
* $20 Rider | $10 Passenger
* FREE T-Shirt to first 100 to register
