    HEAT SAFETY
    Posted: 06/18/2016 
    Attention All Riders,

    We have had a few folks succumb to the heat recently. Our mission is important, but not important as your safety. Remember you are responsible for your safety. That doesn’t just mean while riding a motorcycle in a procession.

    Please remember to hydrate the night before in preparation and before, during, and after the mission. If you are taking meds or have other conditions that don’t mix well with heat, then do the right thing for yourself and take it easy.

    At every mission, the Mission Ride Captain is in charge and will be making the call to stand down processions, give folks breaks from the Flag Line, and other modifications, as needed to ensure folks remain safe.

    Below are a few links to OSHA heat safety guidelines and a heat index chart that Rick provided.
    https://www.osha.gov/SLTC/heatillness/heat_index/pdfs/all_in_one.pdf

    Please be careful and thanks for everything you wonderful people do to honor our fallen and their families.

    HAVE YOU STOPPED RECEIVING MISSION NOTICES?
    Posted: 04/15/2016        Hotmail Update: 06/25/2016

    About sometime in March, AOL and now YaHoo and Gmail began NOT DELIVERING E-Mail that THEY have determined to be SPAM, without regard to their users' wishes.  It took nearly a month to get AOL to stop this practice  for mail from NTXPGR.ORG, but now YaHoo is doing the same thing at a phenomenal rate; Gmail at a slower rate, so far.  Both YaHoo and Gmail do not support the same solution we used for AOL.

    We have invested over a hundred hours so far researching what YaHoo has done and in trying various possible solutions.  We are still waiting for the results of some of that activity.  At this time, we have 4 suggestions:

    1. If you have a more reliable, commercial-grade E-Mail service, please request changing your delivery to the other service by sending an E-Mail to Harold@ntxpgr.org DO NOT re-register!


    2. Make sure our messages are not going to your SPAM or Junk folder.  Add ntxpgr.org to your address book.  Whitelist ntxpgr.org in any way supported by your E-Mail system. 


    3. Report this problem to YOUR E-Mail service (YaHoo.com or Gmail.com) and tell them that THEY have stopped delivering critical E-Mail that you are subscribed to.  Please tell us how they respond.


    4. Watch the Mission Calendar on this WEB site - http://www.ntxpgr.org - there is nothing sent by E-Mail that is not published on our Calendar.


    5. Please Do Not Attempt To Re-register To Correct The Problem - If You Are Using an @yahoo.com E-Mail Address And Have Stopped Receiving Mission Notifications, The Above Mentioned Situation IS The Problem!

    If you have no other E-Mail addresses, we have some alternatives.  Please contact us at harold@ntxpgr.org.  Since YaHoo is blocking all messages from ntxpgr.org, your reply will be from pgrtexas.org - watch for it.

    Update 06/25/2016: We are receiving reports that Hotmail users are now experiencing the same problem. We are trying to get on their "Whitelist" (if they have one).

    We are also investigating moving our Information Technologies services to a new platform to make us appear to be a different organization to these mail servers.  You, however, should see no change except that you may start receiving notices again and may also begin seeing doubles.

    Watch this space for future developments as we pursue a resolution to this situation.

    Joyce and I would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to each member of the Patriot Guard the participated in the services for Earnest Cooley. We were overwhelmed with emotion as we arrived at the shelter as we saw you and your compatriots standing tall to honor Mr. Cooley. The compassion and deference the Guard shows in respecting veterans is amazing.

    First and foremost, you guys are a class act.

    You will never know how much it meant to us for your presence today for Dad's service. Mom cherishes the certificate you all presented to her at the church today. You all have such compassion and truly care about our Veterans and their families. We cannot say thank you enough. I am certain Dad is smiling down from Heaven for such honors today. He was more than deserving of the honors....my hero didn't wear a cape, he wore combat boots :)

    From all of us....THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for all you did today. We pray your journey home was safe and everyone is dry tonight and in their beds resting a peaceful night's sleep. God bless each of you.

    Best to you always,
    Linda Furlow, Lucile Smith, Barbara Carroll and Trish Conner (and all the family)

    Open Carry and The Texas Patriot Guard Riders
    Posted: 12/10/2015
    Greetings fellow Texas Patriot Guard Riders:

    With the soon to be Open Carry Law, we have had several questions about how this will affect the Patriot Guard.

    As we understand the law, you must be a licensed Concealed Handgun License (CHL) holder in order to legally carry a handgun in the open.

    The Texas Patriot Guard is not in the position to question your rights as a licensed CHL holder. A CHL license holder knows where they are allowed to carry a weapon and where they are not allowed to carry based on the laws.

    That being said, we all need to remember that the Patriot Guard are invited guests of the family of a fallen Hero at their most sacred time and we are there to pay Honor and Respect. That respect and common sense needs to prevail. Our missions/ flag lines are not the place to be displaying an open weapon.

    The Texas Patriot Guard Riders policy will be that no open carry will be permitted on any mission.

    The Ride Captain in charge of the mission does have the authority to ask anyone who is open carrying to remove the firearm and place it out of view, and/or ask the individual to leave the mission if they refuse. This policy is not in any way, shape, or form to infringe on the rights of a CHL holder, but to simply set a higher standard to which the Patriot Guard is known for and presents to our Hero’s families at each and every mission.

    Thank you all for supporting the Patriot Guard Riders and Honoring our Hero’s

    Any questions can be directed to me at bstroka@sbcglobal.net

    Bobby Stroka
    Texas State Captain
    Patriot Guard Riders
    Fellow North Texas PGR,

    The PGR policy on Open Carry is just common sense and is not intended to infringe on anyone's rights. I know everyone understands why open carry at PGR missions is not a good idea. It's pretty straight forward that we can't predict how a grieving family, uninvited guests, or the media will react to the sight of weapons openly carried by PGR. Therefore we will simply not take the chance of causing a disruption.

    Not so straight forward is carrying openly publicly or at other events while wearing the PGR logo. Please exercise the same common sense with regard to carrying a weapon openly while wearing PGR gear. The simple act of wearing your gear causes the media and others to associate the person wearing the gear to the organization, whether right or wrong. The PGR has always represented a high standard of honor and respect and is seen this way by the public. We don't want the impression to be changed by the sight of "armed" PGR as a result of carrying openly. We all know how the media reports things and how context can be misrepresented. We can avoid any misconceptions by eliminating he opportunity to do so. Please exercise common sense and abide by the PGR Code of Conduct when it come to how others could perceive you while wearing the PGR logo.

    Thanks,

    Bryan Read
    Deputy State Captain

    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!

    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.

    Thanks,

    Purchases From Amazon Smile Earn Donations For PGR of Texas!
    Posted: 05/14/2015
    This is NOT a free advertisement for Amazon! 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.

    The next time you intend to make a purchase from Amazon, go to http://www.smile.amazon.com and put your selected  items into your cart as normal. 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.

    If you have any questions about this process, please contact Harold@ntxpgr.org. Remember to go to smile.amazon.com and not amazon.com.  Click on more information for additional documentation.
