The Patriot Guard Riders (PGR) - "They Ride with Respect" - Video

The Patriot Guard Riders of the Mid South is a local chapter and part of a national nonprofit organization, know as the Patriot Guard Riders. Their national membership numbers have been estimated by some at nearing 500,000 and is rapidly growing.

This group composed of men and women, veterans and non-veterans, motorcycleist, and non-motorcycleist, alike, have all banded together to support our nations service members of ALL Military Branches to include the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard and Reserve Components, Law Enforcement, Firefighters, and their families to ensure that their service is not only appreciated, respected, and admired, but to also pay honor and tribute to their selfless service and sacrifice.

The PGR does this by notification through an elaborate process by which members of the PGR nation wide are notified of the death and immediate plans put into place to perfectly orchestrate a rally of its brotherhood to the site of the funeral, upon the request of the family. This is done for every request, for every person, that meets the above criteria, both past (anyone who has ever served in any of the above capacities) and present (those currently serving).

The PGR provides a motorcycle escort and U.S. flagline as a symbol of respect for our nations fallen heros. If you are interested in becoming part of this highly respected organization, to assist them in fullfilling this honored duty, the only thing required is a patriotic heart and an earnest desire for Duty, Honor, and Country. No money is required, just a desire to make sure our nations hero's are not forgotten.

Tupelo Masonic Lodge No. 318 F&AM recognizes the importance of this organization because we have many Masons in our brotherhood that are Veterans and are also members of the PGR. Our lodge of Freemasons recogzizes that the very principals that we hold in high regard and live by in our fraternity are exibited by the PGR as well.
