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.

Thank you.

Honor Mission

John J. Hurley, Veteran

USA - Vietnam

Stillwater, New York - 21 Apr 2017


The family of John J. Hurley has requested the presence of the Patriot Guard Riders in his military honors funeral.
John was born in the Bronx to Irish immigrants from Limmerick, Ireland. John proudly served with the US Army from 1966 - 1968. He served in Vietnam as a Specialist 5 in the 360th Transportation Company. John was a heavy vehicle driver hauling JP4 fuel driving thousands of miles on convoy operations. Upon leaving the Army, he worked for Western Electric/Verizon until he retired. John enjoyed animals, especially horses and even took care of Martha Stewart's horses for a few years. He was an avid skiier skiing the slopes of Killington, Vt. One of John's dreams was fulfilled by building a home in Vermont with his partner of 22 years. He was excellent in all trades, was known for his incredible sense of humor, his generosity and his quiet nature.

The Patriot Guard Riders will be there to render Honor, Dignity and respect for the life and service of "The Quietman" Spec-5 US Army John J. Hurley.
