VETERAN BIKERS MC - OUR GOAL IS NEVER TO SIMPLY TALK THE TALK BUT TO ALSO WALK THE WALK !
This is why VBMC will never apply for a 501c3 status. To do so compromises an organization, causing them to be restricted by government as to what they can say, stand up for or against, to include endorsing, supporting or opposing a particular political candidate. In essence they become IMPOTENT SLAVES OF THE GOVERNMENT SYSTEM, cowardly and in fear of loosing their tax exempt status for speaking out against government corruption, violations of our Constitutionally protected rights, liberties and freedoms or any religious matter. They become politically correct and powerless.
AS VETERAN BIKERS WE INTEND ON STANDING OUR GROUND AS PATRIOTS AND BEING THE TRUE DEFINITION OF THE TERM - 'HOMELAND SECURITY'

The Founder/Owner/Nat'l President of VBMC, a retired Military Veteran of twenty three years service along with fifteen years of Federal Law Enforcement background and strong passions for motorcycles began seeing that there exist here in America an overwhelming need for our nation to return to the principles of God, Constitution and Country. For this purpose he began searching for a way to combine his passions and expound on these honorable principles. What better way to uphold these values and bring Honor and Respect back to our nation and those that defend it than to create an elite Motorcycle Club rooted in the same time tested principles of our forefathers and TRUE PATRIOTS? Thus was conceived and birthed the epitome of road warrior worthiness what has now become known as the VETERAN BIKERS MC!
Veteran Bikers MC was first conceived in August of 2010 by Founder and Nat'l President Aaron A. Edison. Aaron, or "MoonDogg" as many know him, is a West Virginia native born in the small town of Grafton, West Virginia. Upon graduating Grafton High School in 1974 Aaron went almost immediately into the United States Air Force as an aircraft mechanic (crew chief) and was stationed for most of his first enlistment at Clark AFB in the Philippians in support of PACAF and the still ongoing Vietnam War.
Aaron discharged his first enlistment in 1979 and returned home to attend Fairmont State College. While in college Aaron kept his military time going by enlisting in the West Virginia Army National Guard from 1982 until 1985. After graduating with honors Aaron began a career in Federal Law Enforcement while enlisting also in the United States Air Force Reserve serving in Pittsburgh, PA from 1986 until 1995. He then transferred to a Pennsylvania Air National Guard Unit from 1995 until he retired in August 2001 last serving as a boom operator aboard Air Force KC-135E tanker aircraft.
Aaron, from the time of his youth, has always shared passions for both the military and motorcycles. It is with Honor and Respect that he now chooses to provide others an opportunity to share in and with him his passions to support and uphold the principles of GOD, Constitution and County and those who so valiantly defend it,,our Nations VETERANS!
Historically and because WE ARE A CLUB, we have set club standards for membership. WE ARE SELECTIVE. Numbers aren't as important to us as our creed to ride as PROUD MEMBERS OF VBMC IN SUCH A WAY AS TO BRING HONOR AND RESPECT FOR OUR GOD, OUR NATIONS CONSTITUTION, COUNTRY AND OUR NATIONS VETERANS.

Those believing they have and share our passion to uphold the creed to RIDE WITH HONOR should by all means apply. All applicants are looked at carefully, character evaluated with emphasis placed on honesty and devotion to our Oath and Creed. THE CHALLENGE IS YOURS!
