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. 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; and (2) Shield the mourning family and their friends from interruptions created by any protestor or group of protestors.  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
 
Gold Star Fathers
The purpose of this website is to ensure that Gold Star Fathers are not alone during the funeral ceremonies of their lost children who have died for our freedom.

At the conclusion of World War II, Congress established the Gold Star Lapel Button to provide an appropriate means to identify widows and widowers, children, parents, brothers and sisters of members of the Armed Forces of the United States who lost their lives in the defense of democracy and freedom during the World Wars I and II; and any subsequent armed hostilities in which the United States became engaged.

The Gold Star Lapel Button's unique design incorporates the symbols that indicated the family's loss; the Laurel Wreath Border signifies valor; the purple field signifies the family's grief or mourning; the Gold Star has been used since World War I to signify 'Died in a Combat Theater'.
