We are a group of Veteran Motorcycle Enthusiasts and focused towards promoting and supporting the Veterans of Foreign Wars programs, VFW Auxiliary and the Community. We Honor Fallen Veterans through Flag Lines and Funeral Escorts and provide various fund raising activities to support Veteran support organizations and raise Veterans awareness throughout our local community. We also support our community through activities with local Law enforcement,EMT and Firefighters and ride in Parades to support these and many other causes. Watch for us on the streets and highways as we are on a mission, and give us a thumbs up and a wave of approval.
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.

Since 1922, the Buddy Poppy has been a integral part of the VFW Community. As VFW's official memorial flower, the Poppy represents the blood shed by American service members. It reiterates the VFW will not forget their sacrifices. Today, disabled veterans assemble Poppies and VFW pays them for their work. In most cases this extra money provides additional income for the worker to pay for the little luxuries that make hospital life more tolerable. Another reason Poppies are so important is because all Proceeds from distribution are used for veterans welfare or for the well being of their needy dependents and the orphans of veterans. Our Poppies are not sold, but rather distributed with a smile and the hope of a donation.
Our Post Thanksgiving Dinner will be held on on November 21, 2021 at 2 pm. Turkey, Ham and wonderful sides will be available. Come join your Post family to celebrate!

On the battlefield, the military pledges to leave no soldier behind. As a Nation, let it be our pledge that when they return home, we leave no veteran behind.
In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers. For he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother. - William Shakespeare
