Our Primary Mission

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.

What Is A Flag Line?

The Flag Line is our most sacred symbol and represents the essence of our core values as Patriot Guard Riders. Honor, appreciation and respect. When invited we place American Flags outside the funeral home and around the burial site of the heroes we are honoring.  Our Riders stand beside each flag in silent honor.

Who do we honor?

We ensure dignity and respect at memorial services honoring Fallen Military Heroes, First Responders and honorably discharged Veterans.

DO we charge for our services?

The Patriot Guard Riders is a 100% Volunteer, Federally registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  We are honored to provide our services FREE of charge to all those who risk their very lives for America’s freedom and security including Fallen Military Heroes, First Responders and honorably discharged Veterans.

"Last Defense"

When a family loses a loved one, the last thing they need to face is a group of irreverent and cruel extremists. This is the moment when the Patriot Guard Riders show their respect in the most affective and protective way.
