Member Code of Conduct
Code of Conduct for PGR Members (amended and published March 2022)
I will adhere to the Patriot Guard Riders (PGR) mission and vision statements, and incorporate
the principles contained therein into all my actions as a PGR member.
I will treat other PGR members with the same dignity and respect I would expect for myself.
I understand our foundation is simply one of honor and respect. Not just of those we serve, but within our organization. I will not speak negatively about other members and will not tolerate members doing the same about members of leadership.
I will remember that my PGR membership role is a position of responsibility to those we serve.
I will do everything in my power to demonstrate to families of veterans and home-front first-responders that the PGR honors them for the service and sacrifice of their loved ones.
This is extended to activities honoring living individuals and units of these organizations.
I will remember that our mission to honor these families and their wishes is my
main priority as a PGR member.
I recognize that my interactions with law-enforcement, government officials and the military
reflect on the entire Patriot Guard Riders organization and can have far-reaching implications for
those relationships in other areas. I will act accordingly, respecting the protocols and regulations
of those agencies.
In any interaction with the media and general public, I will avoid actions or communications
which would negatively impact the reputation of good will toward the PGR. This includes
actions which could present the appearance of political activism on behalf of PGR. The PGR is a
non-political organization. I agree to maintain a strict non-political stance when representing the PGR in any capacity.
