Patriot Guard Riders Mission Statement
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 or if 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 their friends from interruptions created by any protester or group of protesters.
We accomplish the latter through strictly legal and non-violent means.
To those of you who are currently serving and fighting for the freedoms of others, at home and abroad, please know that we are backing you. We honor and support you with every mission we carry out, and we are praying for a safe return home for all.

|Welcome Homes for SGT Bowe Bergdahl|
I received this email from our State Captain who received it through his Chain of Communication.
From: B. Randall Stevens
Date: Thu, Jun 5, 2014 at 8:47 AM
Subject: SGT Bowe Bergdahl
Would you please distribute the following to all State Captains in your region.....thank you.
I am sure you have been following the story of SGT Bowe Bergdahl who was recently released by the Taliban.
We are all very glad to have an American back and out of danger but information concerning the circumstances of his capture have been troubling.
After much discussion, the [National] PGR Board has decided to ask that all Captains stand down any plans for welcome home celebrations for SGT Bergdahl. We do not, nor is it our responsibility to, declare SGT Bergdahl guilty of any crime or dishonorable act.
Should anyone wish to attend a welcome home for this soldier, we ask that you do so as an individual and not as a Patriot Guard Rider.
Vice President for Captains
