I emailed the PGR leadership about having classic car clubs join us, and got this response, do you feel like honoring our veterans and KIA by escorting the funeral procession, then standing a flag line at the cemetery? I know a lot of you are veterans or Patriots that appreciate our Veterans. Oh, a cage is biker slang for a car. We usually have a pickup truck that pulls a small trailer that holds our flags and a water cooler. All you need to do is send your email to your State Captain (www.patriotguard.org) to get put on the mailing list of upcoming missions, and attend any that you can make, be sure and bring your handkerchief, it always gets me when they play Taps.

Veterans, thank you for your service! OK, I have an idea that is out of the box, a paradigm shift if you will, we need to invite classic car clubs to help us escort our heroes and stand a flag line for them, not everyone rides a bike, we have cages that have attended by former members that can't ride anymore, I attended a funeral of a Vet that had several collector car buddies bring their collector cars behind us on the escort to the cemetery. I'm sure they would be happy to escort and stand a flag line with us for our heroes, what do you think? We may have to change our name to PG Riders and Cruisers, PGR&C, we all stand for those who stood for us, or just keep the name with them involved.

Response:
Actually I've participated with car groups already joining in our mission in the High Plains Region. Maybe we need to advertise the part "We don’t care what you ride or if you ride" so everyone is aware we welcome "cagers" to join us. We have even had a Regional Captain to didn't own a motorcycle.
