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.

USA - Vietnam

Pittsford, New York - 20 May 2017


ABOUT THE MISSION:

Members

The PGR has been requested to stand in honor of Calvin J. Bonnett a U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam war. Mr. Bonnett earned a Good Conduct Medal and a National Defense Honor. He was also certified as an expert in the M-16 rifle and 45 cal. pistol.

210 Marsh Rd.
Pittsford, New York -
Ride Captain:
Joe McQueen
UPDATE:
We have 3 other Missions this day, Saturday May 20, 2017. I have been in touch with the family, this will be a non denominational service, with Military Honors. I expect this service to be over before 10:30 am. From White Haven it is 16 minutes to Harv's Harley for the Veterans Ceremony, 20 minutes to my Mission escort in Webster, and Plenty of time to get to the Kade Project registration. I will be attending this service and I would love it if we can get a big PGR turnout for our Vietnam Veteran and his family. I know it's tough at times. Please see what you can do to support the Mission of your choice while also being at this one.
Special Instructions:
This is a grave side service
Staging Site: at an area near Mr. Bonnett's final resting place.
Flags & Water:
Flags Will NOT Be Provided, Please Bring Your Own.
Large Bike Flags will NOT be needed.
Water WILL NOT be provided, please bring your own.
