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

Memorial Day Parade - Central Bridge, NY

Central Bridge, New York - 29 May 2017

 


ABOUT THE MISSION:

The Patriot Guard Riders have been, for the first time, invited to participate in the Central Bridge Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 29th. While not a big or long parade, our presence can make a big impact on the people of this area, especially if we enjoy good weather.

The people of Central Bridge are not fully aware of the Patriot Guard Riders, who we are and what we do. This parade is an excellent way to allow them to experience part of what we do. Following the parade we may be asked to participate in a flag line during the brief ceremony, so please make sure you bring your flags. Let us see flags on our bikes as well.

Please check e-mails as we get closer to the date for possible up-dates.
