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.

Comrades and friends,
Your American Legion Riders Chapter met on January 16, 2020 and installed officers for the coming year. Nebraska State ALR Liaison Marty Timberlake served as installing officer.
The 2020 officers are:
Bruce Gubser, Commander
Ray Paulson, Vice Commander Mike Streeter, Secretary
Dave Dietz, Treasurer
Ray Gilbertson, Sergeant-at-Arms William Smisek, Ride Captain.
While there isn’t much riding going on during these winter months, a few souls have braved the elements and cooler temperatures to “get their knees in the breeze.” The chapter will use these cooler months to get some good plans in place for when the weather warms up. Some items on our tentative schedule include dinner/lunch rides, a couple of Poker Runs, and a potential raffle.
We meet on the third Thursday of every month at the Denton American Legion Club with dinner at 6:00 PM and the meeting at 7:00 PM. We welcome all motorcycle riders / owners of a motorcycle with an engine greater than 350cc --- regardless of make or model.
If you ride, please come on out and join us.
Bruce Gubser, Commander
