    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS

    From The Gerald Luna Mission
    Posted: 08/03/2015
    The comments about the services and actions of your group were absolutely unbelievable. I was completely "blown away" with the respect. careful attention to detail, and service provided. I took Mrs. Luna to the cemetery on Friday to acquaint her with the grave locator, the office and the facilities. There was a group of PGRs waiting nearby, and Mrs. Gerald Luna recognized one or two from the prior day services. It was an honor for her to able to thank these men, again for the honor, courtesy and display of patriotism on behalf of her husband.

    As for myself, I am in total awe of all that your group does. I am at the age where I've been there, done that and have seen a lot of good, and bad, but nothing compares to what I witnessed last Wednesday.

    If ever there is anything I can do, other than donations, please, please let me know. It would be my honor.

    North Texas PGR Windshield Banners
    AVAILABLE NOW!!!

    Posted: 07/16/2015 - Updated 08/01/2015
    The popular North Texas static cling windshield banners are now available from THIS WEB site as promised!!!  The WEB address (URL) has been updated and there are now two versions of this banner available.  The first version is the same size and shape as you see on many of our motorcycle's windshields.  The second version is reverse-printed so they can be placed on the inside of windshields where they are protected from the elements, bugs, and cleaning.  The ink is on the opposite side of the clear material so there is no contact and no transfer of ink to the windshield, and they will stick to the inside of the windshield by static electricity.  They are relatively small and can be left in place on the windshield or they can be removed between missions.

    The price is similar to what they have been in the past, but now you will be able to order them on this WEB site and have them mailed to you or, in some cases, have them delivered to you at a mission.  There are extra costs to ship them.  If you order them on line, you can use your credit card, but the price MAY be adjusted to cover the service charge.  If you pick them up in person, you may pay in cash or by check.  Garland "PAPA" Raney, whom you see on many missions, will carry a supply for sale.  See pricing below.  Any profits from these banners will deposited in the respective PGR bank accounts and used to support our Mission Statement.  This is NOT a private, for-profit venture.

    We expect our first supply of these banners will go quickly, but we will do our best to keep them in stock.  For now, to order, please send an E-Mail to Harold@ntxpgr.org stating:

    1. Which type you want (inside or outside)
    2  How many of each
    3.  Your COMPLETE mailing address.  They are sent by US Mail if shipped.
              If you do not want them mailed, suggest an alternate method and we will discuss that by E-Mail. 
    4.  You will receive an electronic invoice by E-Mail.  Please watch for this E-Mail from
             "North Texas Patriot Guard Riders via PayPal" and pay as instructed.  We, the providers of this WEB site, do
             not ever see your credit card information.  Your credit card E-Mail and statement may reference TeleHobbies, Inc.,
            as he payee (the providers of this WEB site and PayPal interface).
    5.  If you have any questions, ask them in this ordering E-Mail for tracking purposes.  You will not be billed until your questions
            are answered, so be sure to check back quickly.  Your order will not be shipped until the invoice is paid!

    TODAY'S PRICING:
       Normal Static Cling Windshield Banner:  $13.00

    From The Memorial Service of Sgt. Calvin Reid Creamier, Jr.
    Posted: 07/29/2015
    I wish to extend my gratitude and appreciation from the family for all the services the Patriot Guard Riders have provided to our family during this time of loss. Having the Patriot Guard Riders made this occasion a little special for our brother and I know he is looking down from Heaven with a BIG smile on his face.

    My husband was very honored and moved by your presence at the memorial service. Your presence made this mission that much more special and it is very much appreciated. We were able to fulfill Calvin's final wishes and I know he would be grateful as well. Thanks again for all your service and everything you do.

    Please pass this "Thank You" along to all the volunteers who made this day a little more special.

    On a personal note, it was a pleasure getting to meet you and talk with you. You helped lighten my load during this process and it was nice talking to someone who I know cared. Thanks again for your service.

    Sincerely,
    Sheila Creamier
    North Texas PGR Store Re-Opens
    Posted: 07/27/2015

    Please help welcome our new primary PGR store minders. Brenda and CJ Rowell have recently taken on a support roll for our missions and Brenda has agreed to maintain our store and work with me to keep it up and available to our DFW area members. As many of you know Brenda and CJ are a team but you may find them supporting missions and the store on their own when the other is committed to other facets of life so look for them and say hey. They will have the store available this coming Saturday at Brian's Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Mission in White Settlement so stop by and grab a pin or patch. We do have a few things to do to get the store up to 100% but we are working on those items this week and next. Thank you for supporting our store. As you know all proceeds from the store sales go to our area account for operational expenses for our North Texas region. Thank you Brenda and CJ for stepping up again in support of the Patriot Guard Riders Of North Texas. 

    In addition Garland "Papa" Raney has expressed an interest in providing a smaller version of the store to serve our members out east so we will be putting that together shortly so that end of our region is served well too.

    From the Wife of Walter McMahon
    Posted: 07/26/2015
     To God's Army of Angels,
    Strangers when we met,
    Friends and family soon after.
    Your love, support, kindness
    carried me through a very
    difficult time.

    I'll always recommend
    you to others and in time
    give you my support.

    But in the meantime,
    keep safe and may God
    cover you with eagles'
    wings.

    Love,
    Terri Meister McMahon
    From the Family of Colonel Russell
    Posted: 07/25/2015
    On Monday, 20 July 2015, we laid to rest a great patriot and a man among men. You and the Patriot Guard showed much respect for him and it is difficult to put into words how much we appreciate your being there. My Mother didn’t really know what to expect, but after meeting you at the viewing she knew the send off Duane would be receiving would be more than she hoped for. You and your fellow PGR members in attendance Monday made the day more special than we could have believed. I know the Colonel was pleased. You stood fast and held the line, even in extreme heat. The young airmen that were there with the Air Force Honor Guard could learn a lot from you all. I am proud to be associated with you and to have had the honor of the Patriot Guard Riders present on such a sad day. Thank you again for accepting the mission and being there for him as he was for me.

    Sincerely,
    Ken Stout

    Facebook Page Launched By North Texas Deputy State Captain
    Posted: 07/17/2015
    Fellow North Texas PGR,

    A Facebook business page has been launched and you are invited to visit it. Please note that the purpose of this page is purely social. NO MISSION INFORMATION WILL BE POSTED ON THE FACEBOOK PAGE. Please continue to use the North Texas PGR WEB site and Mission Calendar for your one and only trusted source for mission information.

    The Facebook page will be used for non-mission information, events, etc. We sometimes get invitations to events where Riders may wish to participate, but due to the work required, calendar space, and other considerations, we may not be able to post them on our WEB site. This gives us a place to post them where you can view them. It can also be used when we have events such as Meet and Greets. Events on Facebook let everyone choose if they are coming or not and let others view who's coming. I'm sure there are other possibilities, but bear with me as I am a Facebook rookie.

    Check it out by logging onto Facebook and searching for North Texas Patriot Guard Riders. Save as one of your favorites for easier navigation and hit the "like" button as well.

    How does one begin to say, "Thank you," for all that you have done for my dad, Bob Beck? We were so grateful for your presence and escort to Gooseneck Cemetery, Dad’s final resting place. You filled our hearts with an abundance of pride; I know Dad was also watching with a great deal of gratitude as well.

    Upon arrival at the cemetery, seeing all of the flags displayed, again filled our hearts with gratefulness. It meant the world having each of you there with us and we are forever indebted for your presence.

    My dad’s passing on the 4th of July was so poignant as he loved our country more than anyone I’ve ever known. His patriotism was exceeded only by the love and honor in his heart that he so proudly displayed towards his country.

    Thank you for greeting our guests at the church, for escorting us to the cemetery, and for setting out the flags, each and every one so perfectly, and so beautifully. Our hearts are forever appreciative. God bless each of you and God bless the United States of America.

    Gratefully yours,
    Lisa and Dr. (Major) Norm Gonzales, USAF (Ret)

    I wanted to send you an email on mine and my family's behalf, thank you very much for coming out and taking pictures of my papa, Billy Ebarb's gravesite ceremony. I received the CD in the mail a couple of days ago and the pictures came out amazing. Thank you for putting it together and allowing my family and I to remember him in a honorable way. Thank you from the Looper family. Take care

This is simply letting PGR members know that, if they make purchases from Amazon in a specific way, Amazon will donate a portion of your purchase (0.5% of the purchase price) to the Patriot Guard Riders of Texas!  It may not sound like much, but added together, could be a significant amount of money.  The donations go to the Texas State Bank Account, not to any particular region.

Not all items qualify for the donation, but those that are should be marked "Eligible for AmazonSmile donation".   On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), you should select "Patriot Guard Riders of Texas" to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. They will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation.
