About the American Legion Riders:
Today over 425 American Legion Riders programs, organized by
chapters, districts, or departments, support Americanism and Children and
Youth programs in virtually every state in the nation, and more are
organizing each month. One of the fastest-growing and most highly visible of
the many programs offered by The American Legion, The American Legion Riders
are a very diverse group, and so are the programs that they support. What do
American Legion Riders do? The activities are far too many to mention in
this space, but here are a few examples:
American Legion Riders
chapters and districts, nationally, have become some of the most
generous donors for the American Legacy Scholarship Fund, raising as
much as $5,000 or more in a single event.
Legion Riders participate in
the annual POW/MIA Rally held each Memorial weekend in Washington D.C.
known as "Rolling Thunder".
Legion Riders sponsor or
participate in local and national charity events in support of the
sponsoring American Legion Post.
Legion Riders ride to raise
money for such organizations as local VA Hospitals, Battered Women and
Children's Center, Varied Children and Youth programs, a School for
Blind Children, Veterans Relief, Needy families and many, many others.
Legion Riders founded a
national movement called “Patriot Guard” (www.patriotguard.org)
that honors and protects the sanctity of military funerals and memorial
Legion Riders have formed
special motorcycle Honor Guards and ceremonial teams highlighting the
special bonds formed in military service and the motorcycling community.
Legion Riders have also begun
to teach motorcycle and driver safety in the community and in schools in
cooperation with ABATE and other national motorcycling organizations.
