Patriot Guard Riders
The Patriot Guard Riders is a diverse amalgamation of riders from across the nation. We have one thing in common besides motorcycles. We have an unwavering respect for those who risk their very lives for America's freedom and security. If you share this respect, please join us.
We don't care what you ride, what your political views are, or whether you're a "hawk" or a "dove". It is not a requirement that you be a veteran. It doesn't matter where you're from or what your income is. You don't even have to ride. The only prerequisite is Respect.
Our main mission is to attend the funeral services of fallen American heroes as invited guests of the family. Each mission we undertake has two basic objectives.
1. Show our sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families, and their communities.
2. Shield the mourning family and friends from interruptions created by any protestor or group of protestors.
We accomplish the latter through strictly legal and non-violent means.
Directly above is the Patriot Guard Riders' Mission Statement.
Please read it. If you don't agree with it, please don't join.
If you're looking for a group that protests, counter-protests or confronts any organization, you're in the wrong place.
The PGR is not a protest group.
Wow! Nice to know there are more of us out there who have the guts or the heart to acknowledge the sacrifice these brave soldiers have made for their country. You see, it doesn't matter whether or not you agree with us being in Iraq, Afghanistan or anywhere else, these brave soldiers weren't making a political statement for anyone one president or any one party, they were making an honorable and heartfelt statement that they were protecting their families, their country and fighting to preserve our freedom. These were their reasons. And that is why they will always be America's Heroes!
