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.

HOTH Mission

Snowball Express - Syracuse

Syracuse, New York - 09 and 13 Dec 2017


ABOUT THE MISSION:

Once again the Patriot Guard has been asked to participate in the Snowball Express. This mission is for the children of service members who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. These family members will travel to Texas to Six Flags for four days via American Airlines.

I will need your name as it appears on your drivers license and date of birth for the gate passes. I need this information by Thursday, December 7th.   Please use the contact information for me shown below. I know the morning staging is very early, but please make an effort to attend this mission. The mission will be short, but means so much to these families who have endured a tremendous loss, and are facing another Christmas without a loved one. This is where we as Patriot Guard Riders stand proud.
