Minnesota Patriot Guard Member Documents


Out of respect to a grieving family that has so much to deal with, we only make contact with them after we have an invite from an immediate family member, the families Military Assistance Officer, or an invite of the immediate family through the funeral home.

We have worked hard to establish a relationship with several people at the Casualty Assistance Center, and they have been extremely supportive of our mission. They appreciate our respect for the military chain of command and communication - to go outside of this will not help the mission. It will only cause confusion.

The initial contact with Leavenworth and with the CAO assigned to help the family is made either by the State Captain, Assistant State Captain, or one of our Senior Ride Captains. By doing it this way, we can ensure that we carry out our mission in the most uniform and respectful manner.

All mission requests must be initiated by an immediate family member, the families Military Assistance Officer, or an invite of the immediate family through the funeral home. In cases like group send offs or group welcome home missions the military must approve our presents or directly give the PGR an invitation. Do not solicit or ask if the PGR can attend any mission.

If you receive any requests or information for a mission from a family member of a soldier or vet, please forward that request and information to the Missions email address: missions@mnpatriotguard.org

Thank you all for what you do and understanding the above protocol for contacting the families directly...

*** ALERT! *** The Patriot Guard does not charge membership fees
There have been reports of telemarketers in other states claiming to represent PGR, and trying to sell "membership" in the Patriot Guard. There are no membership fees, as noted in our mission statement.
Con artists use membership or donation scams to obtain credit card information. If you or anyone you know receives a call offering membership in the PGR or Minnesota Patriot Guard, do not provide any personal information, especially credit card numbers or Social Security numbers. Notify your police department immediately, and send an email to: missions@mnpatriotguard.org so we can be aware if this is happening in our state.
