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.

I have many fond childhood memories of spending countless hours in the Roberts home. Paul was a no-nonsense kind of guy, who worked hard to build a successful business, but who could also have a good time talking and joking around with his girls and their friends around the kitchen table. Thanks for the memories- Rest In Peace, Twinkle Toes❤️

We were not able to get the names of the gentlemen that came to my Dad's service on Saturday, December 29th at Konnoak Hills Methodist Church but I would like you to know what a wonderful job they preformed. The young man that played Taps was great! I had so many people tell me after the service what a wonderful way to end my Dad's service. We tried to have them stay and have some lunch but they said that they had another appointment to get to so please let them know just how much they meant to me and my family! Thank you again!

Thank you so much for all you do. You all did the flag line for my father's service on October 27th at Pippin Funeral Home and you have also offered to do it again as he is being taken to Arlington Cemetery this Friday morning. I'm honestly speechless and so taken aback by so much love and support from such an amazing organization. What you do not only honors our heroes but also brings more comfort and healing to those who have lost them that I can't even put into words. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
