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.

ABOUT THE MISSION:

Patriots, We have been invited to attend the Veterans Day assembly honoring Veterans at Raynor Country Day School in Speonk, NY on Friday 11/3/17. The ceremony starts at 10:00 am. The school is a private school, pre-k to 6th grade. The assembly will include the singing of Patriotic songs featuring the hymns of all branches of service. They are inviting each Veteran in attendance to come up and tell a short story if you wish about your time serving our country. At the end each Veteran will be given a "to go" lunch. We would need a headcount in advance so they are sure to have enough lunches, so If you can make it please email me: John Fenech at jfenech27@gmail.com so I can give them a headcount.
