The Patriot Guard Riders
As Veterans Day approaches, we begin to reflect on all of those who have served in the armed forces. People who serve in the military are men and women who are willing to risk everything they have to keep their country safe. It is thanks to these amazing people, that we are able to have the lives that we do here in America.
One group in particular, understands and respects the sacrifices that our servicemen and women are making every single day. This group is called the Patriot Guard Riders and when a member of the armed forces, or a first responder, gives the ultimate sacrifice, these people will be there to show their respect to the fallen hero.
The Patriot Guard Riders never seek to cause problems. They attend the funerals of fallen heroes as invited guests. There, they will show their respect and help shield the mourning family and friends from any protesters who might show up. They use non-violent, legal means to protect the mourning family from any interruptions that protesters might try to cause.
When the family of a fallen member of the armed forces, a veteran, a firefighter, an EMT, or police officer contacts the Patriot Guard Riders, they will be there for the family. The rider’s will show their respects to the fallen hero, and help protect the family if need be. They do this, because they understand and respect the sacrifice that this hero gave to keep their country safe for everyone.
