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.

***Escort Request for Dale Lehti


This  is a memorial ride request for a fellow rider that participated in the

We are planning to gather and ride to the Memorial Service for Dale Lehti.  He was an army vet (I believe since he was 82 that he was WW2). He was killed last Wednesday on Hwy. 83.  The service will be January 25 at 11 am in Santa Rosa at the United Methodist Church.

He rode every Wednesday with a group that meets at the American Legion in LaFeria.  He rode a Harley Davidson and really enjoyed being with friends on the road.

The plan is to meet at the La Feria American Legion at 10 am for coffee and donuts.  KSU at 10:30 and process to Santa Rosa for the service.

I wanted to inform all groups.

Hopefully some Patriot Guard riders will want to join us.
