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.




We have been invited to lead the Widow Sons in their Ride as part of their Spring Thing. It is a two part ride from Webster to the Empire Grill on Rt.31 in Macedon. We will have an hour break there then parade back to the Fireman's Field in Webster. Please do what you can to support the Widow Sons as they have been a great supporter of the Patriot Guard Riders.

We have 2 other events the same day. Bill Fuhrmann has a veterans theme Mission at Harv's Harley for a brief ceremony and The Kade Project in Honeoye Falls. Please do what you can to to get out to support these missions. The decision is yours how select which event to attend.

Those of you going to the Mission at Harv's the Empire Grill is only 10 minutes away if that, and you would have plenty of time if you are inclined to join us for the ride back to Webster providing you arrive by 1:00 pm for staging. The Widow Sons Spring Thing is a major event for them and their long weekend will raise money for The New York Warrior Alliance and The Webster Fireman. 

I would like to get as many Flag Bikes as possible, but flag or no flag please do what you can, I know it's a busy day.
There will be a Flag line once we return to Fireman's Field in the afternoon for opening Ceremonies. 
Please bring a clean Flag.
Refreshments are available with entry into the event. $20.00 advance sale $25.00 at the gate.
We will enter the gate for this Mission, we are the invited quests of Widows Sons at no charge. If however you do want to stay then a ticket is required.

Confirmed!!! This portion of the ride is at no charge to the PGR!!!
