Patriot Guard Riders of New York Inc.,Help On The Homefront (HOTH) program which assists our military heroes and their families. We depend on the generosity of our communities that make this program work. Our veterans, brave men and women and their families have earned our respect and gratitude for their selfless heroic acts; some of which have cost their lives. We can never bring them back but we can honor their memories and assist those needing our help.
