Connecticut PGR Weekly Recap

Connecticut Patriot Guard Riders has an Honorary Ride Captain, who left us too soon, in 2013 – Jay Koonz.  Jay participated in many Patriot Guard Missions.  He rode a restored Ural with a sidecar.  Jay would write a recap of Connecticut Guard Missions for the Connecticut Cruise News. 

Connecticut Patriot Guard Riders is beginning a weekly recap our activities, will be published usually on Sunday’s.  This recap is being dedicated to Jay.

It will be posted on the web page: and on our Facebook page: we are connected on twitter and Instagram, it will be share there as well.  It is hopeful this recap will inspire you to participate missions with us.

The Patriot Guard Riders of CT are volunteers and a large majority of us have full time jobs. We are a group that wishes to show honor and respect to our fallen heroes/heroines, including Active Duty Military, Veteran’s of Military Service, First Responders and Patriot Guard Riders Members.

We are not a protest group and we are not an anti-protest group. We will not participate in any event that could even be remotely viewed as such. We will not attend any event of political nature and do not seek publicity. We do attend funerals and on several occasions protesters have been present. Protesters are never recognized and always ignored.


COME stand a flag-line with us, the only, requirement is: RESPECT.
