National Wreath Project
On 4 December 2009 Volunteers will gather at the Gettysburg National Cemetery and place 500 Christmas Wreaths on the graves of
our Veterans. This project is an extension of a program started 3 years ago by John and Susan McColley and the Sgt Mac Foundation.
The McColleys are parents of Gettysburg native and United States Marine Corps Sergeant Eric McColley who was killed along with 7
other Marines and 2 Airmen in a helicopter accident in the Horn of Africa on 17 February 2006. Last year the Foundation placed 2,100
wreaths on graves at Quantico National Cemetery in Virginia were Eric is interred. We also placed approximately 500 wreaths in the
Gettysburg National Cemetery. This year we plan to do the same. With the financial assistance of local and other Veterans
organizations, private and business support we are able to expand this program. We also received and aer seeking assistance from
any patriotic Americans across the Country.

We will meet at the GIANT FOOD STORE parking lot on Route 30/York Road in Gettysburg, PA at 0800 Friday December 4th, 2009 to tie
the bows on the wreaths. At 12:45 PM we will meet at the Taneytown Road entrance to the Gettysburg National Cemetery and place
wreaths on 500 graves. The following day, Saturday December 5, 2009 we will meet at Quantico National Cemetery at 0930 and place
approximately wreaths on 2,100 gravesites. Your attendance and support is most welcome. We would like to expand the program
every year but in order to do so, we need additional support financially and logistically. The cost of the wreaths this year is $ 7.50
each. With sufficient support, we would like to expand this project to be able to place a wreath on every headstone in the Cemetery. If
you would like to participate in this project, please contact Stan Clark at 717-337-1728 or e-mail at

The Patriot Guard Riders is a diverse amalgamation of riders from across the nation. We have one thing in common
besides motorcycles. We have an unwavering respect for those who risk their very lives for America’s freedom and
security. If you share this respect, please join us.

We don’t care what you ride, what your political views are, or whether you’re a "hawk" or a "dove". It is not a
requirement that you be a veteran. It doesn't matter where you’re from or what your income is.  You don’t even have
to ride. The only prerequisite is Respect.

Our main mission is to attend the funeral services of fallen American heroes as invited guests of the family. Each
mission we undertake has two basic objectives.

1. Show our sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families, and their communities.

2. Shield the mourning family and friends from interruptions created by any protestor or group of protestors.

We accomplish the latter through strictly legal and non-violent means.
