The VFW does have a Motorcycle Club. One has been started in California and other states are showing interest. The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States Motorcycle Club (VFW M/C) is a family oriented organization dedicated to the ideals of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States and the enjoyment of motorcycle riding, promoting motorcycle safety and the comradeship of its members.
The VFW M/C is the only M/C authorized by the VFW National Headquarters to wear the Cross of Malta, and is the official Motorcycle Club of the VFW. The VFW M/C does not sponsor, endorse, or recognize any Riders Clubs, and or Motorcycle Clubs claiming affiliation with the Veterans Of Foreign Wars.
The VFW M/C is a neutral club and claims no affiliation with and or allegiance to any organization other than the Veterans Of Foreign Wars of the United States. It is a chartered organization..... and is authorized by the Department of California to operate within the state of California. They have a Constitution and By-Laws that controls the organization and are designated as a 501 (3)c non-profit organization by the Internal Revenue Service. The VFW M/C is recognized at the state conventions but are not part of the Council of Administration. They are looked upon more as a "program" rather than district or post. Currently there are three Chapters within the State.
The National Organization does not recognize the M/C as a viable part of the VFW at this time, however this is expected this to change in the future do to the amount of interest from numerous other states to start their own program along the guidelines of CA VFW M/C. Not sure how long this will take but eventually they will have to realize this is a great program to have and is a good recruiting tool for our younger and future members.
