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.

Tee It Up For The Troops Event

Hamburg, New York - 11 Sep 2017


The PGR has been requested to participate in the Opening Ceremonies for another worthy event benefiting our wounded Veterans. This is the first "Tee It Up For The Troops" Event to be held in New York State. This is a national organization whose golf events benefit the men and women who have been wounded and injured in the defense of our freedoms, and provides the opportunity to personally show our gratitude and appreciation for the sacrifices made by these brave individuals. The mission of Tee It Up For The Troops is to inspire communities across the United States to host patriotic events that will honor our wounded, ill and injured service members and support them as they heal, transition, grow and thrive.

The organizers have planned an exciting Golf event at the club and have a large number of Veterans and Service members participating. They are very excited to have this opportunity to hold the first ever Tee it up Event in New York State. They hope that the Patriot Guard Riders will be able to participate.
