We are the Minnesota Chapter of the CVMA, 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 honor those who have served our country and defended our freedoms.
Our membership is comprised of Full Members (verified combat service), Supporter Members (veterans with non-combat military service) and Auxiliary Members (spouse, widow or widower of a full member). Several of our members continue to actively serve in the Armed Forces to this day.
Our focus is veteran suicide awareness and prevention, helping veteran care facilities, and to simply say “Thank You” and “Welcome Home”. We sponsor and / or participate in many motorcycle-related veteran charity events each year.
