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.

On Friday October 27th Mrs. Squillache will host a Veterans Day Assembly for all US History students (the entire 11th grade, which is approximately 190 students) at the Shoreham-Wading River HS located at 250 Route 25A Shoreham, NY. The assembly will take place from 8:46-10:09 in the high school auditorium. This year's honored veteran will be SCPD Police Officer Matias Ferreira, who is a recent graduate of the SCPD Police Academy. His story was recently featured on NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt.

Shoreham Wading River High School

Parking has been set up for us so we will ride to the assembly as a group to make things easier. We will be departing from the sight of the the Shoreham 9/11 memorial located at the intersection of Tesla St. and Rt. 25A in Shoreham. If you haven't seen this memorial site I'd plan to arrive a little earlier to check it out because it is beautiful. We can park on Tesla Rd which is very quiet that time of the day or I will ask for permission to park at the Shoreham Fire House located right next door to the memorial. We will depart for the High School at 8:00 am.

Please if you know for sure you are attending please just respond to me John Fenech at jfenech27@gmail.com so we can give the high school an approximate number on how many of us are attending so they can have everything set up for us. Thank you.
