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.

Bond family
O God, by whose mercy the faithful departed find rest, look kindly on your departed veterans who gave their lives in the service of their country. Grant that through the passion, death, and resurrection of your Son they may share in the joy of your heavenly kingdom and rejoice in you with your saints forever. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

James is my Uncle and one of the nicest people you could ever know. He will be missed by all who knew him. But he is at his home in heaven now where I can say God received a very talented mandolin playing angel who loved his, family, church and the lord Jesus Christ. The Patriot Guard Riders performed a very respectful service and I am extremely grateful that they were there. Please let Brendan McNair (Ride Captain) and all of those that participated know of mine and the rest of the families gratitude.

Respectfully
