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. 

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 codes – Wreaths Across America will donate another wreath - we get 3 for 2. 


Important information 

Our Group Fundraiser Code is:  NY0057
Our Location ID is:  NYGSNS

HOTH Mission

SPC Ryan Wilcox

US Army - WoT

Mexico, New York - 09-29-18



We have been asked by the Oswego County Comets to participate in the dedication of a specially-designed home provided by Homes for our Troops, to US Army SPC Ryan Wilcox.

SPC Wilcox first deployed to Iraq as a combat engineer with the 479th Engineer Battalion in 2007. During that deployment on March 13, 2008, he sustained a gunshot wound to his right leg while on a route clearance mission. Upon his recovery, he returned to active duty and deployed to Afghanistan in 2012 with the 444th Engineer Battalion. During this combat tour, SPC Wilcox endured chronic pain in his leg due to extensive nerve damage and residual scar tissue, resulting in his medical evacuation from Afghanistan on June 7, 2012.

SPC Wilcox was subsequently treated at Walter Reed Medical Center for over 18 months. After several surgeries and nerve grafts, he underwent the amputation of his right leg below the knee.

Portions of the above narrative are contained within SPC Wilcox' biography, viewable online on the Homes For Our Troops website here:

Let's have a huge PGR turnout in a show of support and gratitude to Ryan for his service to and sacrifice for our country.
