Our Mission Statement:
Virginia Patriot Guard is a diverse group of riders and individuals with one thing in common: we all have tremendous respect for those who risk their lives every day, whether on American soil or abroad, in securing our nation's freedoms and liberties. We encourage those who share this respect to join us in support of all those who have served.
Virginia Patriot Guard welcomes those who do not ride motorcycles, those who are not veterans, and those who come from different states. We only require - Respect.
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
