AMERICAN MILITARY VETERAN MOTORCYCLE CLUBS

IN MY OPINION: It is a fact that military veteran motorcycle clubs are the largest MC’s in our country. It is also a fact that our government and law enforcement agencies are determined to destroy the biker culture in this country, including the military clubs.
Some motorcycle clubs still don’t realize how important the military veterans clubs are to our battle for our constitutional rights.

MilitaryClubsEvery military veteran swore to “protect, defend and preserve the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies both foreign and domestic.” This oath doesn’t have an expiration date and yes, this includes our abusive out-of-control government.
Some government agencies prefer that veterans forget about their oath and quietly disappear back into society. But, many returning veterans have served multiple tours of duty and some need help fitting back in. The government is upset because many join veterans motorcycle clubs where they feel at home with their veteran brothers.

 

The military motorcycle clubs I know only allow honorably discharged veterans with substantial proof to join their club. These are one of a kind clubs. Their professionalism and numbers are assets, not threats, to other clubs.
They don’t claim territory because their members represent the military forces of the US. They don’t wear support patches because it would be a direct conflict of interest that could cause serious problems in the biker community. Military club’s members have earned the right to ride freely anywhere in this country that they have put their life on the line for.

I too am a veteran and in my opinion, we should give military clubs a welcome and show them the respect they have earned. I believe the veterans clubs and their members will join with us in our fight for our Rights and freedom as American citizens.

  • RoadBlock,

    This is probably one of the nicest and best written articles I have read about Military M/C’s. This needs to get out to everyone.

    • As a military veteran who rides; I wholeheartedly agree with RoadBlock. I am a patched member of the VNV M/C now in the Philippines. It is a fact that the government whom we served honorably, considers the M/C’s as a problem that needs to be eradicated. As long as we stick to our rights as American citizens, and stay within the borders of the law and support the constitution we will survive and grow.

    • Great and true I am a its veteran with 50% PTSD and its relieves my stress by riding with my brothers and sister veterans
      So it very good for all of the MC to help and ride we are not a gang we are family

  • This is awesome and true. They definitely need our support. We the people should support.

  • Right on RB,,great article,,

    2nd Amendment
    “” A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.””

    We all know that our Government “”Homeland Security”” has ex Military listed as (Domestic Terrorist).
    JMO, RB, but we are at war with our Government,

    Good example,,during the month of July, Police killed 123 Americans, Black and White,,,,,The Military lost none, during the month of July. The War Zone is here in the U.S.

  • I have to agree with my Brother Quig, it is one of the most complimentary articles I have read in a long time, and you nailed our mentality to a “T”. We All served so that each and every one of the citizens of this country could enjoy the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution and the Bill Of Rights. And I appreciate your insistence that all clubs recognize that we are neutral and that we support everyone’s right to ride free, even to the limits of our unexpired oath.

    And Thank you Roadblock 1%er for your efforts on behalf of all M/C’s, Veteran and otherwise.

  • As an American Legion Rider (Post 562 Cumming, IA) I wholeheartedly agree. Unfortunately I have even seen issues affecting the Riders from the state Legion headquarters so attacks are not always from outsiders. Assuming there is a concerted effort to break up motorcycle clubs expect more attacks from within. Like the socialists running our government they know that attacks from the outside only strengthen our resolve so the best way to break us up is to hassle us with so much political bs we just decide it is not worth the effort.

  • Thanks for all you do for ever one god bless the military our brotherhood is military supporters we can never do enough for my hero’s MLL&R

  • Outstanding piece. I myself am a veteren with 22 years of service. As President of the Disloyal Few Motorcycle Group all but one member isn’t a active or retired member of the Armed Forces.
    I commend you on your well written article stating the facts.

  • I somewhat concur with the gist of this article, however I submit that not all “Military Clubs” are just that. Case in point:
    http://www.vema-usa.com/

    • How about explaining your position “that not all ‘military clubs’ are just that. Most MC clubs have veteran members and are not military clubs. Military clubs are 100% veterans.

      • The one on vema has some firefighters and leo’s who are not vets. Respectfully, Mose

        • V.E.M.A. is not a Motorcycle Club

        • It is therefore not a vet MC. Hell, the IO also claims to have vets and LEO.

        • To RoadBlock 1%er, as many of my Brothers have posted above, your opinion is valued, even though there may be some in 1% clubs who may not agree with you, I know of more who do! So thank you for posting this article.

          After the WACO atrocity, every club out there is now a bigger target than ever before, that is the 1% Clubs, Veteran, Religious, Clean and Sober, Independent Riders, MC’s, MA’s, RC’s, RA’s, all of us!

          What troubles me, when a club identifies itself as a “Veterans Club” it is that not all members are true vets, in the same vein as someone wearing a SAMCRO patch and claiming to be in a MC. If you have one single member, Full Patch, you are not a veterans club, you may be an MC, but in this Vets eyes not a Vet club. That individual who is not a vet but wearing a Vet Patch is the same as that person not going through Basic, AIT, deployments, FTX, all the things we did as Vets, and taking credit for, it is the same as “STOLEN VALOR”. So my question then becomes this; to all the Vet Clubs who allow citizens, how do you feel about a man or woman wearing your uniform walking the malls and sidewalks taking credit for the blood, sweat and tears as you and your Brothers and Sisters in Arms? And how would the Men and Women who paid that ultimate sacrifice feel about them as well? There are plenty of clubs out there who are non-veteran, find one of them and join that club, you can still be an asset to the MC Community. Many clubs sell Support Shirts, have your non vet supporters wear that. I respect all Vets as individuals, I respect the cut they wear, but I will not respect a non vet wearing a Vet cut!
          After 27 years wearing a uniform, and now that I am retired,,,, NOTHING CHANGES: I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic;

          • I understand what you say, but there are no legitimate Veteran’s MCs that allow non-veterans in. Some of the larger MCs have support clubs that allow non-vets, but that’s about it. A so called Veteran’s MC that does is not a veteran’s MC.

    • They are not an MC they are a motorcycle association. If you don’t the difference, ask someone who does. Respectfully.

  • I was a SCM for the VNV M\C. At the time we were the largest MC in the country. The government had their eyes on us and they called us the largest Paramilitary force in the nation. I think they were actually scared of us.

    • Welcome home

    • Chaindrive…..VNVLV MC is still the largest…But we all know all military clubs are under the watchful eyes of our Government….even thou we all wear different colors …we all fought or fight or die for the same reason……and the government knows it…..we give each branch crap cause we can ,but heaven help you if you re not military and talk smack….God bless our troops!

    • Absolutely welcome home. And this government is afraid of anybody they cannot control.

  • Thanks for the article RB. Nice to be appreciated by a 1%er, and a fellow veteran. I do not currently ride with a club, but if I ever do again it will have to be a VMC or one with a lot of vets in it…..I just don’t get along with civilians. Retired Paratrooper, Mac

  • Absolutely and thank you from one Air Force Veteran to another! Great article!

  • RoadBlock,
    I have to agree with your words 100%, it is one of the most complimentary articles I have read. They served so that each and every one of us could enjoy our freedom.

    Thank you Roadblock 1%ER for your ongoing dedication and compassion for the MC world.

  • Very well writen and I couldn’t agree more! Keep up the good work RoadBlock 1%er

  • Being a USMV,MC extension is an honor I uphold with the utmost respect. We not only are heavily involved in our community, but attend several other club functions creating Brotherhood. I thank you for sharing this with me, and Also for Your support, It is truly respected.

  • thank you, for kind words. life member, vnv-lc mc

  • Well said RB my Oath has not expired and I am not alone you have ridden with us when you couldn’t ride with your club it was a privledge! My view may be a little different than some but it is time for all Military Clubs to stand together and fight for our rights as Veteran’s and as Bikers!
    As long as we have petty differences our congressional leaders don’t have to listen stand together and we make them listen, sometimes I think people forget that All clubs have veteran’s not just the military one’s thank you for your service and for what you do every day for our rights see you soon.

  • Nice pc RoadBlock I belong to a Foundation but our national President revoked are charter I guess he seen my Facebook page and seen all my friends biggest part are Outlaws but what he don’t understand my father was a 1% in Chicago when I was growing up and if they don’t like they can have my patch’s back I will always support the Outlaws

  • Yes Sir.. SOLIDARITY.

  • Roadblock,
    Thanks for your article as you said there are some clubs that don’t realize what Veteran Motorcycle Clubs or Veteran Motorcycle Associations do in our community and across the country. The sad part is that my Association has been accepted with open arms by more 1% MC’s than we have by fellow Veteran Motorcycle Clubs. Why I do not know, As you said my Oath of Enlistment has no expiration, I will fight to defend every American in this Country till the bitter end, But WE need to stick together as a biker community and that’s everyone MC’S , VMC’S,RC’S and MA’S. That includes Cruiser’s as well as Sport bike riders .
    My last statement we should all be working to make life better in this Country we call OURS because if we can’t get along on our own now it’s gonna be a lot harder when the enemy is on our own soil and we have to face them not knowing if our own Brother down the street has our back from the start. Roadblock thanks for all you do and affording me a chance to voice my opinion also .And for all that agree with me I hope to see you at the next COC Meeting in your area. God Bless you all and our great Nation……Jetmech CVMA

  • I agree RoadBlock. But there are still some States that 1% clubs will not allow us to wear our Colors. We all fought for the freedom to wear them where and when we please and we should be allowed to do so. After all we are all bikers. Slowflier Ms State Lt. InCountryVets MC

  • Very well written it is an important thing to remember the people who keep this country free and gives the rights to those who think and say what they want.
    I am also a Veteran and I am also a Club member tho I think the 2 are in close proximity, I believe it made me a better Brother to be a Veteran knowing what it means to commit to something bigger than myself and the sacrifice.
    That being said…. I “CHOSE” that for myself I will NEVER expect anyone to give me ANYTHING to me for the sacrifice that I have made for my country my family or my club.
    Roadblock 1% I thank you for your service! I will “CHOOSE” to earn the RESPECT and the right to fly in this country as a BIKER and I will not use my Veteran status as a crutch to earn it. I am quite sure you earned yours RoadBlock 1% as did the ones who came before you and paved the way.
    I know there are a lot of people who won’t understand this but it’s just my opinion of how I will earn my RESPECT and right to fly. Because when it comes down to it we are in this fight together no matter what club. We are the last bastian of discriminated people left in this country. In the publics eyes Patch + Bike = Criminal
    So that when that time comes “and it will come”that we will have to stand together you will know that I earned that right and it wasn’t given to me.
    This is my opinion AND NOT THOSE OF MY CLUB.

  • Thanks RoadBlock
    Very well Spoken Sir

  • Thank you brother! It’s a honor to know you!

  • You said so much with so few words, I have never heard said so well. In our area the USMV does so much for the community and sadly so few recognize their sacrifice made in uniform or the immense good they do the rest of their lives. Thanks for enlightening the public RB. Ride safe.

  • we hear a lot about MC groups. I started a veteran group when I retired from the Army. We are the Elwha Klallam Veterans and have a vest
    that we wear for the services we provide. we have a design that we ride under. we are also American Legion Riders too. it is our understanding that all other group respect other riders when they learn that they are veterans or retirees. we ride to provide services to the veterans in our community. its a way of life for us to get together and just ride.

  • I dig it.

  • I agree 100%. As a member of one of those Veteran Clubs, it is the clubs that act as an education tool to those that know not what we sacrificed and defended.It is the Clubs that defend and pursue the changes needed for all Vets, passed, present and future.

  • Well written article. Retired navy and there are so many Military clubs out there with active and veterans alike in them. I am a very active member of a RC. If we don’t all stay together then we will sink. The only way to survive is unity for our common goals as you say. Waco smells real bad and look what they are doing there…BTW RB my son lived on Free St for a few years.

  • Having served 16 years in the Army, while I did not have the priviledge of manning a war post, I did patrol the Iron Curtain (East/West German & German/Czech Borders) for 6 years and one year supporting troops on the DMZ in Korea, crewing everything from M-48 to The Ass-Kicking M-1. I belong to The BLACKHORSE CAVALRY NOMADS (H Co,2nd Sdrn,11th ACR) serving as the Operations Officer. Our brothers in the BCN have shared the same as stated by the author and other posts herein that it is a brotherhood that just does not go away.
    I try to do as many rides as possible to support our soldiers, PAST PRESENT & FUTURE so as to honor, respect and preserve our way of life. Just the way I was brought up. I have been out for Nye on 30 years but seems like yesterday that I was on the BORDERS OF FREEDOM for all of us and I GREATLY APPRECIATE THE SACRIFICES THAT OUR MILITARY ARE GIVING TO US IN THIS DAY AND AGE. THANK YOU TO ALL SERVING AND ALWAYS ALWAYS REMEMBER OUR FALLEN for they are the TRUE HEROS.

    ALLONS to all MILITARY VETERANS of ALL BRANCHS

  • Roadblock, I have nothing I can add to this. You are dead on. Personally, I have nothing but love and support for all the Vet Clubs I have met and dealt with. They carry themselves with honor and respect. Something a lot have forgotten. Being a Vet myself the make me very proud. And I would like to take this moment to thank you for your service to our country and all you continue to do. You are truly a great man in my humble opinion. Thank You.

  • RoadBlock,

  • I totally agree with your comments. The so called government is trying to take away all our rights piece by piece. We must stay on top of this and stand together for our freedom. The government has always tried to stop any group of individuals,that didn’t meet their so called standards. We will win in the end, there are too many of us who have had enough of this crap,we will stand united to defend our rights.

  • Agreed, provided they maintain their Honor and professional demeanor….when they start acting “Outlaw” they have to be dealt with.

    • If they try to act like a so-called “Outlaw club” they are no longer a military club and are violating the very oath they swore to join the military. Any military club members who want to act “Outlaw” need to join one of the clubs they act like and quit hiding behind their military status. My question is why the military clubs would allow someone to disrespect everything they stand for? Any club that does that creates distrust and animosity for all military clubs in the biker community.

  • Thank you for this article. I move around here and there still trying to stop moving after giving my entire adult life to the military. My club has been established just shy of 30 years. We are 100% military and veterans honorably discharged. We follow traditional values of the M/C world and always have. We don’t care how other people run there clubs and it’s not our business and we like it like that. All we want is to find the freedom we gave our lives for.
    I am quite often taken aback when some clubs have issues with me thinking about laying down roots in their AO. I can go one place and we’re cool, but move over to a different place and it’s a no go.
    If a club comes to me and says hi they get a heart felt welcome and a genuine hope we get to share time together no matter what patch they wear. Except a very few well known douchbags. (CoughIO). I wouldn’t even care about them but they like to act tough with 911 on speed dial.
    My personal opinion not the opinion of my club. Hope to see ya’ll on the road and if ya see me. Say hi. I’ll be the guy smiling happy to be alive.

As a brother veteran you have an understanding that those in the MC world who are not don’t get; and that is that Oath, covered by that blank check to “serve, protect, and defend the Constitution….”, and the honor and brotherhood of service that transcends the patch. Thank you for your service.

    • It looks like Roadblock finally get’s it. He unfortunately jumped to conclusions identifying the four ICMC brothers that were released the next day after the WACO/RICO massacre as confidential informants. It turns out that the local Texan law enforcement didn’t’ recognize them as a veterans MC because the label “vet” isn’t part of our patch. Hopefully that fact is now broadly disseminated. Professor-ICMC 3%.

      • Professor. I did a retraction as soon as I realizes my mistake. I now do a little more investigation before I post something. But, you know as well as I do that the only people who don’t make mistakes are those who don’t do anything. Would you please extend my apology to your Brother ICMC members. RoadBlock 1%er

  • I agree with all the comments on this page. As the IN COUNTRY (VIETNAM) MC, Ohio President I strive to make a point to all those that I talk to that we are Veterans helping Veterans, that we signed up to defend our country and we DID NOT ask what dose it pay or how long do I serve. You serve your country for your in tire life, no matter what branch you served in.
    I would like to thank all those who served for their services. Great job ROADBLOCK
