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.

Warrior Weekend, Veteran

Rhinecliff, New York - 06 Oct 2017


Once again, The Kingston American Legion Post 150 and VFW are hosting "Warrior Weekend". Ambulatory, wounded Veterans, from military hospitals will be brought to Kingston, along with their families, for a weekend of rest, relaxation, and honor. These Vets will be treated to dinners, boat rides, museums, and shopping. All at their own leisure and pleasure. They will be taken out of the hospital, and given a chance, to temporarily forget about their injuries. This process is vital to their healing and recovery.

The event is requesting motorcycle (PGR) set up a flag line at the Rhinecliff Train station on River Rd. in Rhinecliff, NY at 4;30 pm for the 4:55 train arrival. As soon as all Vets are in limos/buses, motorcycles will be led by LEO and escorted to the Kingston Marriot Residence Inn, on Frank Sottile Blvd. A second flag line will be set up as well.
