The American Veterans Motorcycle Club was started in 1972 in California by returning Vietnam Veterans. The colors were then brought to Nebraska where the club flourished and the "Mother Chapter" was formed. The purpose of the Caribbean Chapter of the AVMC is to unite Ex Patriot veterans as a group of people who enjoy the freedom to ride and exercise the freedom of choice that we all served to protect. Our "Band of Brothers," all of whom have honorably served or are still actively serving, in-country or abroad, come from all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.
We wish to present a favorable image of the American Veteran as a motorcyclist by participating in charitable events and any other function that will enhance the image of the club. The patch is meant to tell all who see it something about the people wearing it, namely that we all believed in the U.S. strongly enough to have served in its Armed Forces in order to defend the freedom of choice that we all enjoy, that we believe in supporting the U.S. by buying American made products, and that we will forever defend and protect the Constitution of the United States against anyone who seek to harm or destroy it.
Our club participates in events and/or functions which benefit individual veterans in need, or veteran organizations. We will do everything we can , and insist that the government give us a full accounting of all POW/MIA's of all conflicts. The American Veterans Motorcycle Club has the distinction of having been the first motorcycle club to lay the wreath at the Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier at the Arlington National Cemetery in 1995.
Our club does not and will not interfere in any other motorcycle club's internal business or dealings, nor will we allow any other club to involve themselves in our private club business. We do not bring grief to others, and will not condone others to bring grief to us. We strongly believe in and value the M/C philosophy of Honor, Respect, and Protocol.
We are a riding motorcycle club and seek dedicated, lifetime members who will actively support this club and its agenda. When accepting new members, we value quality more than quantity. If you think that you have what it takes and want to become part of "Our Band of Brothers," then contact us to find out more about the only, real, American Veterans Motorcycle Club.
All prospective members must have an Honorable or General Discharge under honorable conditions from any branch of the Armed Services. All prospective members will be asked to furnish proof of military service and character of discharge by providing either a DD214 or their discharge certificate, which will be kept on file with the club. The reason for this is to eliminate any questions by another group or person that we all indeed are veterans.
In addition all members must own and ride an American made motorcycle (Harley Davidson or Indian), and be able to conduct oneself in such a way as to reflect favorably on the rest of the club.
