As stated in our mission statement :
Our primary mission is to attend the funeral services of fallen American heroes as invited guests of the
family. We do this to accomplish the following:
1. Show respect and honor to our fallen heroes, and support their families and their communities.
2. Ensure an atmosphere of dignity and respect for those in mourning.
Other missions undertaken by Virginia Patriot Guard include:
• Honor Missions for veterans as requested by families
• Visits to VA Medical Centers and Virginia State Veterans Homes
• Welcome Home and Deployment Sendoff Missions.
Before the Virginia Patriot Guard can stand in honor of a fallen hero we must be invited by the next of kin.
