Welcome to our Internet presence.
We are members of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association,
Chapter 26-2 in Vermont.
We are Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Military Wives, Guardsmen, young, old, still serving, retired. We all share a love of country and a profound sense of duty and commitment to our fellow Veterans.
The CVMA is a national organization, with a presence in every state. Although our members may wear a leather vest with a big patch on the back, we are NOT a motorcycle club. Initiation consists of a handshake and a hug. Our members have paid their “dues” on the battlefields of the Pacific, Korea, Vietnam, Kuwait, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan - wherever our nation has sent us to be in harm’s way.
We have all written checks to America for everything we have.
We all carry the scars of our service - some visible, some not.
We are American Veterans and we ride motorcycles.
The National Mission Statement is:
We are an Association of Combat Veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces who ride motorcycles as a hobby. Our mission now is to support and defend those who have defended our country and our freedoms. Our focus is to help veteran care facilities, provide a warm meal, clothing, shelter, and guidance, or simply to say:
“Thank You” and “Welcome Home.”
Our membership is comprised of Full Members (those with verified combat service) and Supporter Members (those who have non-combat military service, and have a sincere dedication to helping veterans). We have members from nearly all 50 states and living abroad. Many members continue to serve in our Armed Forces, with several serving in combat areas now.
We sponsor and/or participate in many motorcycle-related charity events each year, and as a nonprofit organization, donate to various veteran care facilities and veteran charities.
Our Chapter’s members are Motorcycle-riding Veterans and their families who live, for the most part, in Northwestern Vermont. We do have members from the Northeast Kingdom and other areas of the state. You are invited to come for a ride with us, get to know us and, perhaps join CVMA Chapter 26-2.

The emblem of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association is in the shape of a skull encompassed by the following colors. The incorporated colors are: Red, representing the blood that has been shed on the battlefield. Military Gold, representing the many ethnic backgrounds of all nations. Black, representing the heavy hearts possessed for those who gave their lives and for those that are considered missing in action or prisoners of war. The Skull and Ace of Spades represents the death that war leaves in its wake.
