Greetings Riders and Friends, The 2021 riding season is in full swing. Your American Legion Riders are riding. This year, we will be attending a number of parades, after having had so many parades cancelled last year during the scourge known as Covid-19. Thankfully, many communities are moving ahead with their July 4th activities and other community celebrations, and we are happy to be able to represent the American Legion Family at these events. Next month, we will share some pictures of our various activities. Until next time, Ride (and drive) Safe!
Director Lincoln (Nebraska) Chapter 3 American Legion Riders
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
We are NOT a motorcycle club!
We are a part of the nation’s largest wartime veteran’s service organization, members of the American Legion “Family” (Legionnaires, Sons and Auxiliary members) who have joined together to ride our motorcycles for fun and fellowship and to remember and dedicate our self to our original purpose. Service to Our Country.
Being a part of the American Legion, the Riders are committed to:
1. Mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs for them in our communities,
2. Advocating patriotism and honor,
3. Promoting strong national security, and
4. Continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.
True to the Legion's grassroots tradition, each local Riders chapter manages its programs at the post level. Annually the Post 3 Riders are part of many projects and events.
