The following is a compilation of notes I’ve seen from Patriot Guard Riders. Thought most of the words are mine, I cannot take full credit for all of the passages.

The Patriot Guard

Urgent mission request: A Hero is down, kick-stands up!
The Patriot Guard Riders bring another Hero home.


We have felt the thunder in our chest
When one hundred riders go down the street.
We have walked in the fields of stone,
Where families cry and Heroes sleep.

Urgent mission request: A Hero is down, kick-stands up!
The Patriot Guard Riders bring another Hero home.


For an American Hero who paid the ultimate sacrifice;
To the passing of an American Veteran, we stand a Flag Line.
Standing with five hundred or just five
Honoring their sacrifice, no matter the time.

Urgent mission request: A Hero is down, kick-stands up!
The Patriot Guard Riders, “Standing for those who stood for us.”


For hours we stand to show our respect,
We will stand along the highway in 100 degree heat.
I’ve seen riders cry for someone they did not know.
We stand in the snow, and the rain and the sleet.

Urgent mission request: A Hero is down, kick-stands up!
The Patriot Guard Riders, “Standing for those who stood for us.”


The price of our freedom is not free,
Some have fallen, though many keep the fight,
We turn on the thunder for all uninvited guests,
Shielding a grieving family from all that blight.

Urgent mission request: A Hero is down, kick-stands up!
The Patriot Guard Riders, our Hero’s shield.


Tears, reverence, honor and respect
Are but a few of the things we never forget.

Urgent mission request: A Hero is down, kick-stands up!
The Patriot Guard Riders bring another Hero home.

Start out at the national home page... http://www.patriotguard.org/ to join. From there, there should be a link to your State site to register with your State.

P.S. You don't have to be a rider and you don't have to be a Veteran to join. The ONLY prerequisite is to show respect for our Heroes. Also, for our northern brothers, the Patriot Guard is expanding into Canada so check it out if you're interested. (Same link as above)
