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.

Special Instructions:

For those who have helped each year, you know what this is all about.

For those who would like to join us for the first time, we go to the Veterans Home and assist each veteran to select gifts for their family members. When their family visits at Christmas, they have a gift to give them. The gifts are purchased by the American Legion Women's Auxiliary and there is no charge to the veteran. There are gift-wrapping stations and card stations for the veterans. It is an extremely rewarding experience as well as uplifting for the veterans.

I hope you will consider giving a little of your time for those who have given so much for our freedom.


Flags & Water:

Flags Will NOT Be Provided, Please Bring Your Own.
Large Bike Flags will NOT be needed.
Water WILL NOT be provided, please bring your own.
