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.

Dedication Mission

Major Clayton Carpenter, US Army
Road Dedication Ceremony

Yorktown Heights, New York - 16 Sep 2017


Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to honor Major Clayton Carpenter as a road is being dedicated in his name.

On Saturday, September 16th starting at 8:30 am a portion of Route 118 between Kear Street and Underhill Ave in Yorktown will be dedicated to the memory of a former Lakeland High School graduate.

The dedication ceremony will honor Major Clayton Carpenter who was killed in a training related incident in Savannah, Georgia at Hunter Army Airfield on January 15, 2014.

Major Carpenter was deployed in Iraq from 2006-2008 and at the time of his death he was a special operations helicopter platoon leader assigned to the 3rd Battalion,160th Special Operations Aviation Regimen (SOAR).

The New York Riders Group and the PGR will lead off the possession. Your support will be greatly appreciated by his family as they requested our presence. We were honored to have done the flag line at both his wake and funeral so this will bring closure to our mission by attending this ceremony honoring Major Clayton's service to our country.

Primary Staging Time: 08:00 A.M.
