About us We are an Association of Combat Veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces who ride motorcycles as a hobby. Our mission now is to support and defend those who have defended our country and our freedoms. Our focus is to help veteran care facilities provide a warm meal, clothing, shelter, and guidance, or simply to say "Thank You." and "Welcome Home." Our membership is comprised of Full Members ( those with verified combat service ), Support Members ( those who have non-combat military service, and have a sincere dedication to helping veterans ) and Auxiliary Member (who is a spouse of a Full Member and supports the efforts of all branches of the United States of America's Armed Forces and the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association). We have members from nearly all 50 states and living abroad. Many members continue to serve in our Armed Forces, with several serving in combat areas now. We sponsor and/or participate in many motorcycle-related charity events each year, and as a non-profit organization, donate to various veteran care facilities and veteran charities. Our Oath I am a COMBAT Veteran. It is because of me, and my brothers and sisters that the people of this Nation sleep in safety and freedom. It is because of me, that nations of the world respect and fear the might of my country. It is because of me, that nations call upon my country to right wrongs, save lives, and keep their countries safe. Mine is a great honor and legacy. From the fields of Concord to the Mountains of Afghanistan, it is I who represent our Nation. By doing so, I also represent all Combat Veterans who have answered the call of the drum As a member of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association, I will remember those who have led the way. I will honor the trust and confidence of the founders in keeping the Association true to its course of "Veterans Helping Veterans". I will always conduct myself with honor in dealing with my brothers and sisters. I will obey the rules, bylaws and tenets of the Association. I will conduct myself, and expect others to conduct themselves with dignity and respect for each other. I will never knowingly steal, lie, defame, slander or harm a brother or sister of this Association or those who support us. My insignia represents my Association for all to view. I will never dishonor, destroy, or allow my insignia to be in Property of another unless under threat of injury to kin or Family or if as directed by an officer of the Association. My insignia is my statement that I belong to a Veterans organization and have earned the right to represent my Association and my fellow veterans. I will always conduct myself in a respectable manner and as a defender of my Country. I am a combat veteran
DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF CLOTHING OR CLUB MEMBERSHIP IS ILLEGAL
Any person whose exercise or enjoyment of rights secured by the Constitution or laws of the United States has been interfered with, or attempted to be interfered with may institute and prosecute a civil action for injunctive and other appropriate equitable relief including the award of compensatory monetary damages. The Supreme Court ruled in the case of Cohen vs. California, 403 U.S.15 (1971) that individuals have the constitutional right under the First Amendment to wear clothing which displays writings or designs. In addition, the right of an individual to freedom of association has long been recognized and protected by the United States Supreme Court. Thus, a person's right to wear the clothing of his choice, as well as his right to belong to any club or organization of his choice is constitutionally protected, and persons or establishments who discriminate on the basis of clothing or club memberships are subject to lawsuit.
