Special Mission

Memorial Service - American Gold Star Mothers

Latham, New York - 21 Apr 2017



The Patriot Guard Riders have the distinct honor and privilege of having been requested to participate in the 81st Annual Convention Call - Department of New York - American Gold Star Mothers.

During this multi-day event there will be a very solemn Memorial Service to remember those Deceased Members of the American Gold Star Mothers. The Patriot Guard Riders have been requested to stand the flag line for this Memorial Service.

I don't need to tell anyone here the special and profound relationship the Patriot Guard Riders have with our Gold Star families. Let's have a great turnout to show these Gold Star mothers and fathers that we will never forget the very profound and personal sacrifice their families have made in service to our country.
