Our Mission Statement
The Michigan Patriot Guard is a diverse group of individuals, with one thing in common: We all have a tremendous love and respect for our country and 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 and still are serving.
Many Michigan Patriot Guard members ride motorcycles but we are not a Motorcycle Club or a Ride Club, we are Patriots and many of our members drive cars and trucks. We welcome veterans and non veterans alike and we do not distinguish between the two. Our only requirement is a deep love for our country and respect and honor for those that served and those currently serving to protect the very freedoms we enjoy today.
The Michigan Patriot Guard will participate in activities that honor and show respect for all military members, both past and present, and their families,. This may include financial assistance for charitable reasons, gathering as a group at Patriotic events, or by providing an escort for appropriate veteran causes.
We are a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation. Our primary mission is to provide financial assistance to Heroes and their families in their time of need when other resources are not available in a timely manner.
This is accomplished by fund raising activities such as charity rides, rallies, events, and by soliciting corporate and or private donations.
Our secondary mission, but just as important, is to attend the funeral services of fallen American heroes as invited guests of the family.
We do this to accomplish the following:
- Show respect and honor to our fallen heroes, and support their families and communities.
- Ensure an atmosphere of dignity and respect for those in mourning.
- Protect the families from interruptions by any person or group using only lawful means.
We also will assemble as requested for support at:
- Honor Missions for Veterans.
- Welcome Homes and Deployment Sendoff Missions.
- If invited we will also attend Hometown Heroes Missions which include Fire Fighters and Law Enforcement Officers.
