    If you are not logged in, you will be asked to include your name and email.

    We strongly recommend all PGR members log in before leaving condolence messages. This makes it unnecessary to identify you, and will include information from your profile such as your photo (if used). It will also get your comment posted faster.

  • After posting a condolence message I noticed that auto correct changed the name I typed in for the deceased. How can I edit that?

    • You would have to send an email to the webmaster (webmaster@patriotguard.org) with the details of the comment (particular the mission name), and what you would like corrected.

  • When I leave a condolence I would like for a signature of:

    How or where do I go to get this?

    The platform we used for the website since 2013 (vBulletin 4.xx) is being discontinued. We were in a bind because many of the plugins we were using (most notably the forms plugin that handles our missions) are no longer being supported. This means that would could not update the backend scripting files or the backend database.

    Failure to do some of these updates would leave the website open to security problems, but doing them would break required functionality of the system. In short, it was an unsupportable situation, and we had to make a change.

    We made the decision to use the most widely used and support platform instead – WordPress. While it entails some major changes, we are confident that this is the best move for the organization.

    User names can only be changed by the system admins. To have your username changed, send an email to accounts@patriotguard.org

    When you send your request, it’s a good idea to send 2 or 3 different choices. Usernames must be unique, and if your choice is already taken, we can’t change it.

    The standard method to view missions for a particular state is slightly different for members and non-members.

      • If you are logged in as a member, select the menu option Members -> Upcoming Missions
      • If you are not logged in as a member, select the menu option Upcoming Missions

    After the menu calendar loads, select the State for your state under Narrow Your Results at the top of the page. However; this can be a little slow, especially if it’s toward the end of the month and there are lot of missions to display.

    There are some faster methods.

    State Pages

    If you are not a member of the PGR, you can see all of our state pages by selecting the menu option About Us -> State and Regional Leadership. This will take you to a page that lists all of our regions, with links for the states within those regions.

    If you are a registered member, it’s even simpler. When you first log in to the website, scroll down the page just a little, and underneath blue bar with membership information, you’ll see an option to click on a link for your Home State Page. Select that, and you’re in.

    You can also access the page (along with an explanation about the state pages) through the menu option Members -> State Missions.

    Create a Bookmark

    Many members and visitors to the site choose to make a bookmark to view missions. You can navigate to a state page using the options listed above, or you can view the Upcoming Missions calendar, filter for the state you wish to view using the State option, and then save that view as a bookmark in the browser you are using.
