(READ OVER THIS PAGE THOROUGHLY AND CAREFULLY)
MEMBERSHIP IN VBMC IS STRICTLY VOLUNTARY!!!
VETERAN BIKERS MOTORCYCLE CLUB IS NOT A LITTLE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB! WE ARE A MOTORCYCLE CLUB (MC). WE ARE NOT A 1% OR OUTLAW CLUB BUT WE ARE AN MC. ANYONE CONSIDERING MEMBERSHIP IN VBMC NEEDS TO THOROUGHLY UNDERSTAND THAT FACT AND WHAT IT MEANS. IF YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND,, ASK BEFORE MAKING THE COMMITMENT.
AS A VETERANS MC WE DO NOT PROSPECT. OUR VIEW IS IF YOU SERVED THIS COUNTRY AND / OR AS A PATRIOT SUPPORT THOSE WHO DID YOU HAVE A CONSTITUTIONALLY GUARANTEED RIGHT TO PATCH UP WITH US AND WEAR OUR COLORS. ALTHOUGH WE DO NOT PROSPECT A NEW MEMBERS FIRST YEAR IS AUTOMATICALLY PROBATIONARY AND SOME REQUIREMENTS AND SOME RESTRICTIONS APPLY (See: Probation Expectations). IT'S A TIME FOR LEARNING THE MC WORLD AND ITS PROTOCOLS. EVERY AND ANY SUBSEQUENT YEARS MEMBERSHIP CAN BE DECLARED PROBATIONARY AS WELL IF A MEMBER IS FOUND TO BE LACKING IN CHARACTER.
As stated REPEATEDLY in our mission statement and other locations throughout this website we are more interested in QUALITY OF MEMBERSHIP than in quantity of membership.
VBMC IS NOT FOR EVERYONE !! We are an ELITE group. Many are called but FEW are chosen. We are panning for gold in VBMC. From Headquarters down to the lowest lone wolf we will sift out the weak and keep the strong. To belong to VBMC requires strength of character, courage, resolve, tenacity, integrity, and an overall ability and willingness to stand in defense of our club, club colors, club members as well as our mission in defending the GREATER FOUR (GOD, Constitution, Country and our nations Veterans). Not everyone possesses these qualities and we fully understand that here in VBMC. Make sure YOU, your spouse and others understand this as well. We will always make every attempt to MIND OUR OWN BUSINESS and show respect to those who show respect to us. Respect from others however is NEVER guaranteed and we have no control over that.
IN THE MC WORLD THERE IS ALWAYS THE POSSIBILITY THAT AT SOME POINT YOU WILL BE CHALLENGED - HOW YOU REACT TO AND RESPOND TO THAT CHALLENGE WILL DETERMINE YOUR CHARACTER.
WITHOUT EXCEPTION, WE VIEW ANY VBMC MEMBER THAT COWERS TO INTIMIDATION FROM THOSE OUTSIDE VBMC AS A DISGRACE AND EMBARRASSMENT TO OUR CLUB SAME AS A DESERTER WHO RUNS FROM THE ENEMY ON THE BATTLEFIELD.
As veterans there has never been a time that we renounced our vows to stand in defense of our Constitution and the rights and freedoms that it guarantees. We expect no less out of our Patriot members.
The LORD is my light and my salvation; of whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? ~Psalms 27:1
Just don't talk it,,, LIVE IT !!!
WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR CHILDISH, OVEREMOTIONAL, HYPERSENSITIVE, WHINERS, DRAMA TYPES, COWARDS OR "CLING ONS" IN VBMC. CLING ONS ARE THOSE THAT SIMPLY WANT TO WEAR THE PATCH AND CALL THEMSELVES MEMBERS BUT NEITHER HAVE THE COURAGE OR RESOLVE TO STAND UP FOR THE CLUB, OUR CLUB COLORS AND THE GREATER FOUR NOR HAVE AN ABILITY AND / OR WILLINGNESS TO BE REGULARLY INVOLVED IN CLUB ACTIVITIES, EVENTS, MEETINGS, ETC ETC.
VBMC IS LOOKING FOR SOLDIERS,,,MATURE, SERIOUS MINDED, DEDICATED, LOYAL MEMBERS WILLING TO STAND THEIR GROUND IN DEFENSE OF THE CLUB, OUR CLUB COLORS AND THE GREATER FOUR AND TO BE ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN MAKING A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN OUR SOCIETY VIA CLUB PARTICIPATION.

BECOMING A PATCHED MEMBER OF VBMC
The process is actually very simple. First we're hoping you've had the time to read over our information provided here on our website. We understand there is a lot of material here to digest however it is our objective to be as transparent and to provide as much information to those interested as possible. We are an above board organization with our business headquarters and WV Chapter 001 first registered with the State of WV in April 2011. We believe our goals and objectives are indeed honorable and speak for themselves.
If you have indeed read over our website information we ask that you also take a moment and join our website and create your website profile so that we and other members can stay in contact with you and you with us. BE SURE TO ADD A CLEAR PORTRAIT PICTURE OF YOURSELF IN YOUR PROFILE (*REQUIRED FOR IDENTIFICATION PURPOSES*). ALSO BE SURE TO ANSWER ALL FIVE (5) PROFILE QUESTIONS HONESTLY AND THOROUGHLY (*REQUIRED*).
Next, if you are a veteran and interested in becoming an active Full-Colors Member of VBMC, we require from you a zerox copy of your DD Form 214 or your Discharge Certificate (either will do) to prove your Veteran Status. If you are currently active duty, guard or reserve we require a zerox copy of your military ID Card or recent copy of military orders. If you are a non-veteran and interested in becoming an active Associate/PATRIOT Member of VBMC we do NOT require this documentation).
Secondly, we require that you go to our VBMC DOCUMENTS PAGE here in our website and open, download and print three documents (Statement of Conformity document, Waiver of Liability document and the VBMC OATH document). Once you have a printed copy of these documents, read over them carefully and if you agree to the terms please sign and date them in front of a notary or other VBMC member witness and have the notary or other VBMC member witness it by signing and dating them as well. Also print off the New Colors Patch order form and fill it out as well telling us what size patches you are requesting for your vest. This form can also be found in our VBMC Documents page.
Third, send ALL of the above mentioned documents along with your initial, first year membership fee of $180.00 (Full-Colors Membership) or $170.00 (Patriot Membership) to VBMC Headquarters. Afterwards and each subsequent year all members are required to pay an annual dues to Headquarters in the amount of $30.00 (Full-Colors members) and $20.00 (Patriot members). At the moment we accept Personal Checks, Certified Checks or Postal Money Orders.
Make membership fees checks or money orders payable to VETERAN BIKERS MC HEADQUARTERS and in the "memo" or "for" section of the check you should list Veteran Bikers MC Fees. Mail with the other requested documents to Veteran Bikers MC, 516 THAYER STREET, GRAFTON, WV 26354.
NON-MEMBER SUPPORT (NMS) has been created to accommodate spouses or significant others of actual club members who wish to ride along with their spouses or significant other but do not wish to become actual club members but only wish to show their support for VBMC. These non-members have no club rights or privileges. NMS may ride along with their spouse or significant other on APPROVED VBMC rides and missions only and will be the sole responsibility of their member spouse or significant other and must conduct themselves according to club expectations when doing so.NMS will be authorized to wear ONLY the VBMC Eagle and VB Flag patches in conjunction with a SUPPORT banner on their vest. NO OTHER patches or pins are to be worn on a NMS vest.
ALL MEMBERSHIP FEES AND DUES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE
Headquarters as well as your Chapter will create a file in your name with copies of your documents and checks kept on record as proof of your active membership.
Once VBMC Headquarters receives the initial membership payment and paperwork we will provide the new member a set of our Colors Patches to be worn on their black leather vest or jacket. (note: each member must purchase their own black leather vest or jacket).
ALL COLORS PATCHES ARE THE SOLE PROPERTY OF VETERAN BIKERS MC HQ LLC. IF AT ANY TIME A MEMBERSHIP IS TERMINATED THE MEMBER MUST RETURN ALL COLORS PATCHES TO VBMC HEADQUARTERS IMMEDIATELY. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN LEGAL ACTIONS BEING TAKEN AGAINST THE FORMER MEMBER.
