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.

HOTH Mission

Buffalo Niagara Honor Flight

Cheektowaga, New York - 04 Nov 2017


ABOUT THE MISSION:

Those of you who have participated in the recent renewed Buffalo-Niagara Honor Flights know what a thrill and honor it was to escort the Heroes and their Guardians to the Airport, and later welcome them home from their exciting and memorable flight to Washington D.C.

These Veterans and their Guardians are treated to a day unlike any other as they visit their Memorials, often for the first time. They are treated like Rock Stars everywhere they go. We had great turnouts for these previous Missions....let's try to duplicate it this coming Saturday for the final Honor Flight of the year!
