We are a newly formed chapter of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association based out of West Point NY. We're looking for seed money to get our chapter on the road to helping veterans in our local communities this coming riding season. More ...

We are an Association of Combat Veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces who ride motorcycles as a hobby. Our mission is to support and defend those who have defended our country and our freedoms. Our focus is to provide support to Veteran’s Organizations, Active Duty, Reserve, and National Guard military personnel of all branches and their families in our local communities, and also to simply say, thank you and welcome home to our nation's veterans. Our common ground is the love of motorcycling and having served in harm’s way.

The New York State Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association consists of five (5) chapters each with a specific area that they support. The West Point Chapter is composed of over 45 members, 25 of which are active duty Soldiers or combat veterans working and serving on West Point, and currently supports the southern half of New York State to include all of the mid to lower Hudson Valley and all 5 boroughs of New York City to include Long Island. This seed money would enable us to advocate for and provide direct labor and financial support for veterans, their families, and veteran’s organizations throughout the Hudson Valley to include New York City.


We are working to provide this seed money to purchase the initial startup equipment needed for our chapter. We are a new addition to the West Point NY Community, established in September 2013 and need a base set of equipment to use in our efforts to support veterans in our communities. The money raised will be specifically used for items such as flag poles and American Flags to be used during all types of ceremonies that our organization attends as well as equipment such as tables, chairs, and a canopy to be used during community events to both raise funds and awareness for veteran’s issues.


Annual and recurring events that our organization supports include: The Honor Flight Network, Purple Heart Homes, Special Olympics, Homes for Troops, Toys for Tots Rides, Rolling Thunder, Patriot Guard, Vietnam Veteran’s Traveling Wall Escorts, Wounded Warrior Project events, veterans funerals, Unit deployments and redeployments (Active, Guard, and Reserve,) Veteran’s grave maintenance, veteran’s homes and VA hospital visits, benefit rides for veteran’s with specific needs, VFW and American Legion events, and numerous Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day events.


On behalf of the members of the West Point Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association and veterans across the Hudson Valley, I would like to personally thank you for considering making a donation to help our organization get rolling. I would also like to THANK YOU for your support of the motorcycling community and THANK YOU for your support in the service to our nation's veterans.
