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.

DHL Trees For Troops

Oceanside, New York - 04 Dec 2107


DHL Cargo Airlines has invited us to their 14th annual Trees for Troops event. The festivities start out at Dee's Nursery in Oceanside at 9:45 am sharp. There will be a ceremony taking place at Dee's followed by a police escort to JFK to the DHL Cargo Building where we will help load one of the tractor trailers full of trees onto the plane. We plan on leaving Dee's at 11:00am and arriving at JFK at 11:45am. There will be a short ceremony at DHL as soon as Santa Claus himself arrives via DHL Helicopter. After the trees are loaded we are invited for lunch in the DHL building upstairs. Please have photo id with you if you plan on going inside for lunch.
Also if you know you are coming, I need you to email me your name only by 12/1/17 at noon the very latest as they need to order the food. Please email me at: I have attended this event the last 4 years and I can tell you it is a lot of fun.

From DHL:
DHL has teamed up with Dees’ Nursery and the New York community to donate and deliver hundreds of Christmas trees and thousands of holiday letters, menorahs, decorations and gifts to U.S. servicemen and women serving their country abroad through the ‘DHL Operation Holiday Cheer’ charitable program. The special holiday shipment will receive a send-off celebration on Monday, December 4, from the New York area nursery and will be loaded onto an aircraft at the DHL gateway facility at John F. Kennedy International Airport. DHL will deliver the trees and holiday items to U.S. servicemen and women serving their country in Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait and Bahrain. Local community and veterans groups, schools and Nassau County dignitaries will help send off the shipment of holiday cheer – along with a special appearance by Santa bearing DHL gifts and the USO Show Troupe. A procession of local police departments arrive at DHL’s JFK gateway with the shipment of trees, holiday items and thousands of letters for U.S. troops serving in the Middle East. The shipment will be loaded by DHL employees, VFW, military and law enforcement personnel, and members of the community.
