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.

Memorial Mission

ABOUT THE MISSION:

Riders,
We have been invited back to stand with the Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 11 members to remember those that served our country when it was not popular and never came back.  Services take place at the Bald Hill Brookhaven.

The names of all those lost from Suffolk County will be read along with the names of other veterans that over the years have been requested, including many of those fallen that we have stood for.

It is a simple and moving experience that is a fitting way to end this most solemn of weekends.
