    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS

    From The Rick Nash Mission
    Posted: 04/14/2014
    On behalf of the Bedford Fire Department, I would like to extend our sincere gratitude to the entire Patriot Guard Riders organization for supporting us in providing a respectful memory filled Memorial service to honor the passing of Retired Firefighter Rick Nash.

    We were enormously overwhelmed with the manner in which the members of the Patriot Guard Riders extended their supreme respect, honor and emotional support to the family and to the members of the fire department.

    Sincerely,
    James Tindell
    Fire Chief
    A Special PGR Plaque To Mike "Hot Wheels" Tate
    Posted: 04/07/2014
    On Monday April 7, 2014, Texas State Captain Mike "Gunner" Lambert and Ride Captain Carlton "Cruiser" Emmons made the trip to Cisco, Texas, to present a special PGR plaque to Mike "Hot Wheels" Tate. Mike joined the PGR a number of years ago, but due to health issues, has only been able to attend a few missions in the Cisco/Comanche area. What Mike has undertaken though, is a tribute to him and his selflessness to honor those who have served and their families. Mike gathers intel from the National Website and sends a condolence letter to each and every Hero throughout the country.

    We all have our calling within the PGR and Mike’s, although unseen, is as important as those of us who stand the flag line.

    Thank you, Mike, for your condolence letter writing campaign and may God Bless you for all your tireless efforts.

    Carlton "Cruiser" Emmons

    From The 1LT Robert F. Welch Run for Our Heroes Race Mission
    Posted: 04/07/2014
    Thank you again so much for coming out to participate in the Run for our Heroes this past Saturday. It is always a deep pleasure of mine to be able to be around you and the rest of the PGR family. The canvas of Rob that you all surprised me with was amazing and so incredibly moving. I cant even express in length how excited and touched I was to receive it. Please let the rest of the riders know just how much we love and appreciate them all. Looking forward to Snowball! :) Hopefully, our paths will cross before then. Have a blessed day and thank you again!

    I just wanted to thank you and all the Patriot Guard Riders for honoring my husband, Ellis Ponthier. It was comforting to me to see how many friends he had in the group. PGR standing tall helped me to get through the memorial service. Thank you again for all you do.

    Sincerely,
    Norma Ponthier
