    Note:
    You do not have to own/ride a motorcycle or be a Veteran to join and membership is Free. The only requirement is respect. To join, simply go to Patriot Guard website and click on Register.

    We are having problems with our self service subscription system, and are temporarily using a manual system. We hope to return to a self-subscription system shortly. We ask that our PGR members bear with us as we fix the system; but if you must unsubscribe now, please send an email to accounts@patriotguard.org with Unsubscribe in the subject line, and our volunteers will remove you from the National list for your state.

    Special Note - If your state already notifies you of mission activity, sending an unsubscribe note to accounts@patriotguard.org will only remove you from these National mailings. You will continue to receive your state notices.

    Please only Unsubscribe once. We must do this manually, and adding multiple unsubscribe requests will slow down the process.

    SPECIAL NOTE: Safety is of our utmost priority. Every effort possible is made in planning and executing the PGR MISSION Statement in a manner that minimizes the inherit dangers of riding a motorcycle, including riding in groups of all sizes and any situation. While the PGR and its riders have a remarkable safety record in the execution of our missions, infrequently members have been injured in unforeseen accidents. In an effort to mitigate the risk of preventable accidents, all attendees who wish to ride in a Patriot Guard motorcycle escort or Honor Mission are asked to attend the pre-mission briefing. It will include a safety briefing and any unique ride information known to our Ride Captain(s) that may be specific to the mission. Member safety and well-being is always a principal ongoing concern. Our Ride Captains are asked to stand down from any mission that cannot be accomplished in relative safety or unreasonable risk. This includes both rides and flag lines in inclement weather and other conditions. It remains each individual PGR member's responsibility to ride within their own comfort zone and be cognizant of their surroundings and skill limitations as well as any physical needs or limitations. If the ride and/or mission conditions present challenges beyond your skill, comfort, or needs, you are expected to exercise good judgment in foregoing any planned participation

    Flags & Water:
    Flags Will Not Be Needed
    Large Bike Flags will be needed
    Water WILL NOT be provided, please bring your own.

Find peace, strength and comfort in the knowledge that your fallen hero gave unselfishly of themselves in order to keep us all free and safe. Your brave warrior will never be forgotten. Thank you for sharing your loved one with all of us, their sense of duty and honor will live on for generations to come. God Bless you our Hero for a job well done.Stand down and rest in peace.




    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.

    Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on,
    and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone.
    Those we love can never be more than a thought apart,
    for as long as there is memory, they’ll live on in the heart.
