The Patriot Guard Riders are a diverse group of individuals with one thing in common: we all have tremendous respect for those who risk their lives every day, whether on American soil or abroad, in securing our Nation's freedoms and liberties. We welcome those who do not ride motorcycles, those who are not veterans, and those who come from different states. We encourage those who share this respect to join us in support of all those that have stood for us.


Request Us

The North Texas Patriot Guard Riders are honored to be invited to show honor and respect to our fallen or participate on patriotic community events honoring our military, first responders and veterans.

Our presence can be requested by anyone with the family's permission. However, we must be invited by the family so contact with an immediate family member is required to obtain their invitation.

A common misconception is that you must be a veteran or ride a motorcycle. This is simply not the case. While the majority of our members are veterans and do ride motorcycles, we have many who have never served a day in the military and many who attend missions in their vehicles we call "cages". If you share our passion, please join us. Our common bond is an unwavering respect for those who risk their lives for America's freedom and security.

Join Us

The Patriot Guard Riders is a 100% volunteer, federally registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which ensures dignity and respect at memorial services honoring fallen active duty military, first responders and honorably discharged veterans.

We are an organization whose volunteer members attend the funerals of members of the U.S. military, firefighters, and police at the invitation of a decedent's family.  Our organization is made up from volunteers from across the nation and all walks of life.  Some of our ranks are veterans.  Some are retired professionals.  Some are doctors and lawyers.  Some of us ride motorcycles while the rest drive their cars and trucks.  You don't need to be a veteran.  You don't need to ride a bike.  You just need to respect what our veterans and first responders have done for us.


The Patriot Guard Riders of North Texas thank you for your generous donation. Your commitment to helping show honor and respect to the families of our community is appreciated by those who stand the Flag Lines and most importantly, by those who benefit from our services.
