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.

If you would rather mail in an order, click ORDER FORM.


Thank you.





Memorial Mission

NYS Trooper Tim Pratt

Clifton Park, New York - 21 Oct 2017


Tim Pratt was a NYS Trooper who was near and dear to the heart of many in the PGR. Tim regularly posted to participate in LEO requested escort events led by the PGR. His heart was as big as his smile and he became a friend to all in the motorcycle community. It has been almost one year since that tragic accident took Tim away from his family, friends and fellow troopers.

To honor Tim and his memory and for his contributions to the PGR and the greater community in which he lived and served - the PGR will present memorial plaques to his family in the Wilton Trooper Barracks where Tim proudly served.
