You may have already seen them, they are patriotic citizens, that give of their own time to honor, and support all of America's military veterans. The Patriot Guard Riders, PGR as they are referred to, is not a motorcycle club. In fact, you don't have to ride a motorcycle to be a member. It's free to join and made up of all volunteers.
They have two (2) basic missions;
First, to honor and at the request of their family serve as escorts for our fallen heroes to their final rest. They serve as a shield against those who would disrupt and dishonor those who have fallen in service to our country.
Secondly, the PRG supports Help On The Homefront. (HOTH) This effort is to help active veterans and their families. For example, they help in building, repairing, adapting housing for disabled Vets needs.
