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.
