COMBAT VETERANS MOTORCYCLE ASSOCIATION®
We are an Association of Combat Veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces who ride motorcycles as a hobby. As a registered 501(c)(19) veterans’ charity, our mission is to support and protect those who have defended our country and our freedoms. Our focus is to provide assistance and help to individual veterans, veteran care facilities, other veteran organizations and registered charities. We sponsor and participate in many veteran-related motorcycle (and other) charity events each year, and as a non-profit organization, donate to various veteran causes.
Our membership is comprised of Full Members (those with verified combat service), Supporter Members (those who have non-combat military service and have a strong dedication to helping veterans), and Auxiliary Members (Spouses of both Full and Support members). We have members from all 50 states and numerous countries abroad, including combat areas.
Please note that we are an ASSOCIATION and NOT a MOTORCYCLE CLUB (MC). Although we may be in a geographic area, we do not claim territory. We do not have a club house. We do not wear cuts or colors, but rather vests. The patch on our back is one piece.
We are a group of veterans that share the honor of military service, which has shaped our lives and helped preserve our nation's freedom. We have members from Vietnam era to recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan - but we have an unbreakable bond that unites us all as brothers and sisters. This bond is strengthened by our mutual enjoyment of riding motorcycles, embracing life and dedication to our mission of "VETS HELPING VETS".
Our Mission is to:
- Ensure every vet is treated with dignity and the respect they deserve.
- Offer assistance to vets in need.
- Make a difference in the fight against PTSD/TBI.
We honor and respect our Prisoners of War and those still MIA.
- To those that went before us, we say, "Job well done!"
- To those who came behind us, we say, "Keep it up!"
- To those with us we say, "Thank you, Brother and Sister!"
- To every veteran we say, "Welcome Home!"
