This Saturday, honor our country's incredible veterans and join hundreds of your fellow riders for the Annual North Dakota Patriot Guard Ride. The staging area is the Jamestown Civic Center, The ride registration begins Saturday morning at 9:30 with kickstands up at 11. The honor ride heads first to the North Dakota Veterans Home in Linton. NDPG State Captain Arlen Halverson is pleased to share that the ride to the Vets Home is still a go even in these pandemic times.  The ride will then return to Jamestown for a supper at the All Vets club.

If there is to be any interaction with residents of the Home, I presume masks should be worn out of respect for the health of our veterans.our Veterans.

So who exactly are the North Dakota Patriot National Guard?  Well, first off what it isn't- it's not a motorcycle club.  The Patriot National Guard motto is "Standing By". They only come together when there is a "mission".  The mission will generally be related to veterans who have passed on or current veterans that need their support.

It's unthinkable to me that groups would protest at a military funeral (or any funeral), but the North Dakota Patriot National Guard are there to support the family and honor the fallen.

You don't have to be former military or an NDPNG member to join the tribute- and ride registration is just $20.

Support this important group as the region gathers together Saturday for a great ride!  Registration begins 9:30 at the Jamestown Civic Center.
