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.

Welcome Home Escort 11/5/11

My Brothers and Sisters of the PGR and Biker Groups,

USMC First Sergeant Roman Rodriguez and wife Cynthia are requesting a "Welcome Home Honor Escort" for their son who is back from serving in Afghanistan.

Their son is US Army Specialist Rene R. Rodriguez working in Military Intelligence. He has been in the service for 2 years. Served in Afghanistan from October 10, 2010 thru October 2011 and just returned to Fort Polk, Louisianna.

He will be coming home to Harlingen on leave where a surprise party is planned for November 5th by his parents at their ranch.

Requesting all available bikers to assist on this day and give our soldier the "Welcome Home" he deserves ! I want a big show of support . . .  50 bikes or more!    We can do it!  Lets Make It Happen! ! ! He is also a biker, so he'll be riding with us one of these days!


Date: November 5thTime: Arrive 16:30 - 16:45; KSU @ 17:00Place: Expwy 83 and Bass Blvd, in HarlingenRally Point: Gas Station on Northwest side of Expwy 83

*** Concept:
To have close phone support from USMC First Sergeant Rodriguez and while USA Specialist Rodriguez is driving home on a pre-planned route, we will intercept his POV and Escort him HOME!

Once we arrive at his parent's ranch, we will welcome him home, stay for a very short time and be on our way.

This will be his "family - time".

This is about making his arrival memorable for him and his family!

Thank You for your continued support, without you (our PGR members and our Biker Groups) we could not make this happen.

Thank You again. God Bless you and your families.
