Some gave all---All gave some. Those of us who have served during war-time know what this means.

We are at war. Want to know how you can give some? There is a group calleed the 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).

It all started back in early August of 2005 with the American Legion Riders chapter 136 from Kansas. They were appalled to hear that a fallen hero?s memory was being tarnished by misguided religious zealots who were protesting at funerals (the Westboro Baptist Church, Topeka, Kan.)

Just recently the WBC?s website had the funeral of Sgt Griffith in Boulder City, NV scheduled for protesting. They didn?t show up?and maybe that is because we of the NV PGR did!
