The Patriot Guard Riders Mission Statement

Mission Statement:

The Patriot Guard Riders is a 100% volunteer, federally registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization which ensures dignity and respect at memorial services honoring fallen military heroes, first responders, and honorably discharged veterans.

Vision Statement:

The Patriot Guard Riders is a diverse amalgamation of riders from across the nation. We have one thing in common besides motorcycles. We have an unwavering respect for those who risk their very lives for America’s freedom and security, including fallen military heroes, first responders, and honorably discharged veterans. If you share this respect, please join us.

We don’t care what you ride or if you ride, what your political views are, or whether you’re a hawk or a dove. It is not a requirement that you be a veteran. It doesn’t matter where you’re from or what your income is; you don’t even have to ride. The only prerequisite is Respect.

Our main mission is to attend the funeral services of fallen American heroes as invited guests of the family. Each mission we undertake has two basic objectives:

1. Show our sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families, and their communities.

2. Shield the mourning family and their friends from interruptions created by any protester or group of protesters.

We accomplish the latter through strictly legal and non-violent means.

To those of you who are currently serving and fighting for the freedom of others, at home and abroad, please know that we are backing you. We honor and support you with every mission we carry out, and we are praying for a safe return home for all.

A Message From LRC Mr. T.

A Good Frozen Morning to all Fellow Patriot Guard Riders! Hope everyone is keeping warm and doing well after this cold temperatures finally hit us.
We have received an invitation from our Winter Visitor friends at Palm Shadows RV Park, 200 N. Valverde Road in Donna Texas for the PGR to participate in a flag line for a Veterans Wall dedication to honor WWII, Korean and VietNam veterans on Saturday February 12th.  The dedication is set to begin at 2:00 P.M. If you plan to attend, please plan to arrive NLT 1:30 P.M. The RV park is between Old Business 83 and Expressway 83. The Color Guard from Harlingen Texas will be there, as well as a military veteran as guest speaker.
On another note, we apologize for not conducting any previous PGR meetings, but the Patriot Guard Riders will have our first 2011 Meet N Greet on Saturday February 19th. at 3:00 P.M. at the Weslaco Paradise RoadHouse Bar & Grill located on the East frontage road of FM 1015 & International Bvd.
