Meetings: 4th Monday of the Month @ 7:00 PM

 

The American Legion Riders 371 is a service affiliate of George Walton Post 371, and is made up of members who hold membership in, and be in good standing with, The American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary or Sons of The American Legion.

Legion Riders work alongside the Legionnaires of Post 371, SAL Squadron 371, and Auxiliary Unit 371 to achieve the same goals providing service to our community, state and nation, as well as to veterans of the US armed forces.

One of the fastest growing and most highly visible of the many programs offered by The American Legion, The American Legion Riders are a very diverse group, and so are the programs that we support.

The activities are far too many to mention in this space, but here are just a few examples:

  • American Legion Riders chapters and districts, nationally have become some of the most generous donors for the American Legacy Scholarship Fund, raising as much as $5,000 or more in a single event.
  • Legion Riders participate in the annual POW/MIA Rally held each Memorial weekend in Washington D.C. known as "Rolling Thunder".
  • Legion Riders sponsor or participate in local and national charity events in support of the sponsoring American Legion Post.
  • Legion Riders ride to raise money for such organizations as local VA Hospitals, Battered Women and Children's Centers, Varied Children and Youth Programs, a School for Blind Children, Veterans Relief, Needy Families and many, many others.
  • Legion Riders founded a national movement called “Patriot Guard” (www.patriotguard.org) that honors and protects the sanctity of military funerals and memorial services.
  • Legion Riders have formed special motorcycle Honor Guards and ceremonial teams highlighting the special bonds formed in military service and the motorcycling community.
  • Legion Riders have also begun to teach motorcycle and driver safety in the community and in schools in co-operation with ABATE and other national motorcycling organizations.

  • Members must hold membership in and be in good standing with The American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary or Sons of The American Legion.
