What is the North Dakota Patriot Guard?
The Patriot Guard is not a motorcycle club, although sometimes mistaken to be. Members include members of some motorcycle clubs, riders who are not members of any MC, and people who don't even ride a motorcycle.
The Patriot Guard members have one thing in common: Unwavering respect for those who risk their lives for America’s freedom and security. Members don’t have to ride a motorcycle, share political views, or have military service experience. The only prerequisite is Respect.
Our main mission is to attend the funeral services of fallen American heroes as invited guests of the family. We show sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families, and their communities. When necessary and invited to do so, we shield the mourning family and friends from interruptions created by any protester or group of protesters. We accomplish the latter through strictly legal and non-violent means.
HELP ON THE HOMEFRONT
Another Mission For North Dakota Patriot Guard
It is the intention of the North Dakota Patriot Guard (NDPG) to assist the Veteran's community by taking a proactive role in the lives of our Veterans and the societies they protect and defend. The NDPG wishes to serve all heroes, not only the ones who paid the ultimate sacrifice but also those whose lives have been forever changed by the actions and events of his service to the United States of America. The physical condition of some of these Veterans often creates overwhelming and seemingly insurmountable challenges. Often, they will struggle with issues interfering with sense of pride, accomplishment, and personal satisfaction. For most life will never be the same. It is our intention and vision to secure a place in our communities that will continue to honor and assist these heroes with the dignity and respect they deserve. They are true American heroes who must overcome their disabilities. They are our friends, family members and neighbors; it is an honor to be in their confidence. This confidence must not be taken lightly. We should visit and befriend these Veterans. We should be waiting with open arms to help them. Finally, we must maintain this sacred trust we develop for as long as these Veterans need us, up to and including a lifetime if the need exists. It is our hope that any person or NDPG member who cannot make honor missions due to work commitments, financial reasons, or family duty may find in this program, an avenue to support our Veterans and their families at a time when they most need it. It is with the support of our ever-growing membership, Government coordination, and the mutual support and respect of other organizations, that the NDPG(HOTH) Help On The Homefront program is a success.
