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 services.

Legion Riders have formed special motorcycle Honor Guards
and ceremonial teams highlighting the special bonds formed in
military service and the motorcycling community.


Remember: American Legion Riders are a very dedicated group
of Legion Family members.
