From the Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club USA website:
This club is an international organization with members in Europe, Canada and the United States. We are made up of both in-country and Vietnam-era vets. We are bonded by history, and united by principles to form a proud and unique Biker Brotherhood: The Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club.
We have pledged to contribute our energy, time and resources to build a better future for all veterans and their families. Our prime directive is to do everything within our power to bring our POW/MIA Brothers home, and to insist that our government provide accountability for each of these patriots.
Members of the Vietnam Vets MC USA continue to honor our solemn oath to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States against all enemies both foreign and domestic. We also make every effort to reach out to other Vietnam Veterans with whatever assistance we can offer, whether it be helping them understand their rights and benefits, or helping them wrestle with the bureaucratic system that seems to have been organized to deny them. We often sponsor awareness events within our communities to help bring to light the plight of often forgotten Veterans.
Our Brothers share a strict set of codes, ethics and values. We are not a criminal organization nor do we have any intention of becoming one. We do feel strongly about government infringement on personal liberties and civil rights, and will speak up and take action as appropriate. We do not get involved with the private business of other motorcycle clubs or their problems. We strive to respect the freedom of the wind and the road.
"We are the Brotherhood in the Wind"
We returned from an unpopular war, scarred mentally and physically to a besieged Nation. We served honorably when called upon and during a time when it was socially acceptable for our peers to burn their draft cards or flee to Canada. Wanting only justification and reasons for the death, destruction and sacrifices that were made in South East Asia. Instead of the absolution we sought, we were lied to by our Government, demonized by the media, some veteran groups, and the public.
Most Vietnam Veterans decided to blend back into society, by attempting to hide their Vietnam service. Others refused to hide, and many of them became bikers, and remained FREE MEN.
