Welcome

About Us

The San Antonio  Patriot Guard Riders hold no political agenda, just a strong desire to honor those that are serving or have served in the military. When invited by family, we attend funerals and interments, participate in standing a flag line, and provide a barrier between the family and any person or group which might show up to disrupt these solemn services. We also participate in numerous parades, festivals, and gatherings, honoring active military members and veterans.

Along with our support of our military and veterans, we also proudly support law enforcement, fire, and EMS as each of these individuals put thier life on the line everyday so each of us can enjoy the safety and security right here at home.

The San Antonio Area Patriot Guard Riders are also honored to assist the Welcome Home Soldiers group.

Welcome to San Antonio Region Patriot Guard Riders

How the PGR Started

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, Fred Phelps afnd the Westboro Baptist Church who were protesting at funerals.  They decided to do something about it. A group of bikers who were Veterans formed a committee to strategize and form a battle plan to combat Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church.

What the Patriot guard Riders are Today

“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 Military Heroes, First Responders and honorably discharged Veterans.”

Our Vision and Mission

The Patriot Guard Riders is a diverse amalgamation over 200,000 members from every state in the nation that ride together to honor all our fallen military servicemen, women and Veterans across the country. 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.

What we Do

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.
If this sounds like something you would like to be a part of please register at the National Patriot Guard Riders website using the button below.

Donations To The San Antonio Patriot Guard Riders

The San Antonio Area Patriot Guard Riders is an All-Volunteer Organization. Every member participates at their own expense and liability because we think it is the right thing to do to honor our nations patriots. We do not charge for our participation nor solicit donations.

We participate in the funeral services of active military personnel as well as our nations veterans and first responders SOLELY at the invitation of members of the deceased's immediate family. We consider it an honor to be invited and that, in itself, is all we ask!

Some families, individuals, and even large corporations prefer to make donations to show their appreciation.  Your donation will be used to help defray our ongoing expenses including, but not limited to, purchasing American Made Flags (Using All American Made Materials) and replacing the large flags you see when we stand a flag line, purchasing bottled water for our riders and family members to drink on those hot Texas days, and other consumable items.  No one on our All-Volunteer Staff is paid and none of your donations go to political agendas, lawyers, or to other agencies.  Our WEB services and all our information technologies services are donated and, therefore, not a PGR expense.

The San Antonio Area Patriot Guard Riders always appreciates those who wish to assist us in what we do.

Security:  Your Credit Card information is transmitted between your device and PayPal's servers on secure links.  Your personal information is never sent to us or to anyone else.  Your donation is deposited directly into our PayPal account and then into our State 501(c)(3) Non-Profit, Tax Exempt Bank Account.

Thank You

 
You'll probably see us coming...
You'll surely hear us leave.
But when we stand the flag line,
It is "Quiet, as you please."
 
We're here to show you honor.
Respect and thanks for what you do.
Because you stood for U.S.,
We stand here now for you.
 
Honoring all our Veterans, Active Duty servicemen
and women, Firefighters and Law Enforcers
