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

Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Climb

Albany, New York - 17 Sep 2017


ABOUT THE MISSION:

The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to participate in the Albany Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers event. Members will form a flag line for the arrival of participants, and during opening and closing ceremony.

Among the promises made by Americans after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 were to pay homage to those who perished, and to never allow the pride, heroism, and resilience displayed by Americans in the aftermath to be forgotten.

We continue to urge Americans to honor our first responders, all who lost their lives on that fateful day, and those who have been catastrophically injured while fighting for the country. It’s imperative that we celebrate these heroes and honor their legacy forever.

We are holding this event to raise money and honor these heroes with a stair climb at the Corning Towers. All monies raised for The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation builds mortgage-free smart homes for our most catastrophically injured service members through our Building for America’s Bravest program.
