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.

My Dad, me, and my brothers have been PGR members for about 10 years; we have participated in several missions either together or individually. We have stood on the Flag Line and done the Escort simply because It's The Right Thing To Do. This time we saw the mission from the Family's perspective, and I must say, this organization represents the finest America has to offer! To see those PGR members standing their silent watch, on their own time, out of simple RESPECT had such profound and humbling effect on our grieving family; we could never thank you enough! Dad would have been so proud to know that he and his service were so deeply respected. Our Mom was very moved by their presence as well. It is a memory that we all will cherish-to know that Dad received the tribute that he had earned and deserved. Thank You again from all of us!
