Tribute Donations

Our mission is done out of honor and respect, and there is never a charge or an expectation of payment. However, many have asked to donate to the PGR in memory of the heroes we have stood for, or to honor those still with us. This is a record of those donors and their honorees.

Tribute donations may be made from our Donate to the PGR page.

Clinton was my uncle. He and his wife cared for me when I was a baby and toddler while my mom worked and attended school. Without their help, I would not be the woman I am today. He was so proud to have served his country. He was a loving husband, caring for his wife at home until she passed a few years before him. Extenuating circumstances prevented me from being there. Thank you so much for standing in for the family. Your service and dedication is much appreciated.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for the honor and respect you unselfishly show our American hero's, and most recently to my husband. Being surrounded by the Ohio Patriot Guard Riders to Dayton National Cemetery was an emotional experience that brought tears to our eyes. You guys are truly amazing. It was raining that day but I don't think you even noticed. You came to show your respect, and that is what you did. The plaque that was presented to me by Mr. Don Moore was so beautiful and will be treasured forever. God Bless the Patriot Guard Riders for all you do. You are appreciated!!
