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.

After Honor Flight for those that are interested, it is not a Mission, we will escort Vernon Grady on his last motorcycle ride.

Vernon is a WWII Navy veteran. MOS: Signalman who directed ship traffic at Normandy. His ship delivered Army troops that were assigned to Utah Beach.

Vernon had expressed a last wish to ride in a motorcycle-sidecar. For the time he was in St Ann's, Vernon was confined to his bed..24/7.

Vernon's guardian has asked if we could take Vernon on a short 'sidecar' ride before his ashes are transported to South Carolina to be united with his wife's grave site.
