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.

Wading River HS Honoring Veterans

Shoreham, New York - 27 Oct 2017


Patriots: We have been invited by High School Social Studies teacher and PGR member Ruth Squillache to stand at a ceremony honoring local Veterans in our community. 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. Please view the following news story:

Special Instructions:

KSU 8:00 am sharp, proceed to:
Shoreham Wading River High School
250 Rt 25A
Wading River, NY

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 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.
