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.

On behalf of our family, please accept our sincere thanks and appreciation for providing such outstanding support at our father's funeral, Ray,(Bud) Martinez.
We can’t thank you enough for the wonderful tribute the Patriot Guard paid to our father. He would have loved it. Even though the weather was not the best, your team made it beautiful with such respect. The stuffed animals that one of the riders gave the great grandchildren was very heartfelt. It brought tears to their parents and hugs by the children during the entire funeral.
We wish to express our heartfelt thanks for the honor that you showed our loved one. Please extend our gratitude to the other Illinois Patriat Guard Riders.

Sincerely,
Martinez Family
