The American Legion Riders are members of the American Legion who are also motorcycle enthusiasts. They can be found participating in parades, partaking in motorcycling events, and supporting the communities in which they live, work, and play. Members of the ALR come from the Legion, the Legion Auxilliary, and the Sons of the American Legion. The American Legion Riders were formed...
...to participate in parades and other ceremonies that are in keeping with the Aims and Purposes of the American Legion.
...to promote motorcycle safety programs and to provide a social atmosphere for American Legion members who share the same interest.
...to use our Association to promote and support programs of the American Legion.
The American Legion Riders is not a M/C, and does not practice M/C rules or regulations. The American Legion Riders is family-oriented, just as is its parent organization: the American Legion.
"We, your American Legion Riders, ride for God and Country, the American Legion family, and allied veterans everywhere, protect those that protect us, Amen."
The Mission of WAGS 4 WARRIORS is to
unite veterans whom upon returning home from war suffer with PTSD or TBI with an appropriate dog, and to provide all of the training, equipment and support for the dog to become the veterans service dog at NO COST to the veteran.The ultimate goal is for the service dog to take away the struggle the veterans face everyday .
More than 300 asbestos-contaminated products were used by the military, primarily by the Navy, from the 1930s through the 1970s. All ships, vessels and shipyards made use of asbestos; particularly where construction, overhauls and repairs took place.
Asbestos exposure can lead to the development of mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive cancer. Unfortunately, veterans comprise approximately 30 percent of all mesothelioma diagnoses and many veterans were exposed to asbestos during military service.
The Cleveland Fisher House will be a 16,000 square foot home with 21 suites and will accommodate up to 42 family members. The cost to build the Fisher House will total approximately $6 Million. The goal of the medical center is to fundraise $3 Million. After the medical center reaches this goal, the Fisher House Foundation will build the Cleveland Fisher House.
The American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund was created to help ensure children who have lost a parent at war receive the education they need and deserve. The Legion Riders are among the fund's biggest donators, creating the annual Legacy Run in 2006. To date, almost $3 million has been contributed to the Legacy Fund. Of that, almost $1 million has come from the Legion Riders' Legacy Runs. The overall goal is to raise $20 million, to sustain the fund and fill the needs of those children. Thanks in part to the Legion Riders, the Legion has made a great start but still has a long way to go.

Legion Riders today
Currently, 106,000 American Legion Riders meet in over a thousand chapters in every domestic department and in at least three foreign countries. Riders in Iowa have formed an honor guard called The Five Star Freedom Riders, and Riders in Mulvane, Kan., founded the Patriot Guard to protect the sanctity of military funerals from protesters. Riders in all states have escorted military units returning home from combat tours overseas, conducted massive cross-country fundraising events for wounded warriors from all services, and have raised millions of dollars for countless local, state and national charities.
True to the Legion's grassroots tradition, each chapter manages its programs at the post level, where the best ideas are born.
American Legion Riders chapters are often well known for their charitable work, which has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local children's hospitals, schools, veterans homes, severely wounded servicemembers and scholarships. Since 2006, Riders nationwide have participated in the Legion Legacy Run, to annually raise money for the Legacy Scholarship Fund, established to provide scholarships to children of U.S. military personnel killed since Sept. 11, 2001.
