Missions are one of the ways Patriot Guard Riders New York, Inc. (PGRNY) show support for US service members, veterans, and their families.
Missions vary greatly and can include standing flag lines or providing escorts to veterans for such diverse events as calling hours, gravesite services, the return home of veterans on Honor Flights and active military personnel from overseas assignments, as well as for ceremonies honoring veterans, etc.
There are two types of missions: Funeral and Event.
Funeral Mission Requests must be made by a family member. Funeral requests may be to stand a flag line at the funeral home and/or church service; provide an escort to the cemetery, and/or stand a flag line at the cemetery. It is up to the family to determine how much representation they wish from PGRNY.
Event Mission Requests are for any ceremony or event other than a funeral and can be made by an organization or individual. These requests may be to stand a flag line at the airport for returning veterans or active military personnel; stand a flag line for various ceremonies honouring veterans, provide escorts of veterans to various events, participate in parades as an escort to veterans, etc. It is up to the requesting organization or person to determine what type of representation is wanted from PGRNY.
