Veterans of America Motorcycle Club, Inc.
mission & vision
The Veterans Of America Motorcycle Club, Inc. was founded in the late 1980's as a group of veterans who were serious motorcycling enthusiasts. To date we have two chapters in the state of Wisconsin. The founding chapter based in Racine, along with a chapter in the Northwoods (Antigo area) are involved with community activities and fund raising. Both chapters are strong and growing every year.
We were founded to promote:
Camaraderie between Americans and veterans who are motorcycle enthusiasts, who were proud to serve their country, who honor America’s flag, and who respect their country and the rights of it’s citizens;
Involvement between ourselves and our community, the people within our community, and the charitable and veterans organizations which help our community;
And as a group the cause of the American Prisoners Of War and the American men and women who are Missing In Action as a result of American involvement in wars and conflicts.
As a group, we are involved with a number of events throughout the year:
Rock for Vets™ (a night of musical entertainment)
Pool For Vets (an 8-ball pool tournament).
Vet’s Day - these are daylong picnics in which we assist the patients in a day of music, games, and a great cookout, at the Veterans Assistance Program in Union Grove WI.
Numerous rides and fundraisers to assist both Veterans and non Vets.
Memorial Day Celebrations (Union Grove, Milwaukee, Crandon)
And the numerous events our club sponsors throughout the year, such as our beef roast, , boat ride, fishing with the Vets, and our holiday dinner with the displaced Vets at Veterans Assistance Program in Union Grove, WI.
