One more thing to add i fought hard for my country and flag to rip up the flag is a ass kicking offence no matter what the number of so called MC had with them.
That was incorrect information and was later refuted. No flag was ever desecrated. Vets would never do that. It was and added comment by someone who was not there and just trying to stir up something. You should know as a Marine Vet that your fellow vets, who served their nation and country, respect our flag and would never dishonor it.

FUNNY, how my post was removed proving how and why the situation happened. Wonder what the Orlando Sentinel is trying to do. LETS STOP ALL THIS BS before someone get seriously hurt! Seems that the MAN wants us to carry this on until tey have something to bring us both down.

One Last thing. To the Brothers of the VNV/LV MC and the WBVMC, QUIT putting our trash on the streets. All this does is let the MAN have the ammunition to bring us down. Both Clubs do wonderful things for OUR Active Duty and Veteran Men and Women. Don't give the MAN anything to stop this, and believe me, they would love nothing more than to do that. We both know this was started by a few BAD SEEDS and should not allow us to coincide with some give and take.

Should we be recruiting memebers online? Wouldn't that make the club a internet club. Wow first WBVMC gets accused of it then VNV/Legacy MC do it. You to clubs should just relax, either agree to get along, or at least call a truce. If you continue you will bring heat on everyone, then niether club will allowed to exsist. I hope i have made myself perfectly clear here.

FUNNY BUNCH OF CLOWNS SET US UP SHOOT US WE DEFEND OURSELVES AND WE ARE THE BAD GUYS RIGHT GUESS YOU EITHER DIDN'T HEAR WHAT HAPPENED IN PALM SPRINGS OR YOU HAVE THE MISTAKEN IDEA THAT IT IS OK TO SHOOT US. BAD CHOICE BUT WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM A CLUB OF COPS HIDING AS A VETERENS M/C
This happened almost 4 years ago. Apparently Flash was not in Palm Springs. The facts are; there were only 3 WBVMC at this event. The youngest was 58, the oldest was 63. 20 to 30 VNV/LV arrived and one WB extended his hand in friendship. This gesture was returned by LV kicking over 2 bikes and several VNV/LV coming at the WB with knives drawn. Self defense? Several VNV/LV were arrested for wearing body armour at a family event. Could it be they came looking for trouble? There was no "set up" because the WB didn't know the VNV/LV were going to be there. If you check you would find out Riverside County always has LE presence standing by during ANY 1% event and they tape everything. Paranoid thinking. LV have several MP members. Same as LE. Suggest you check your facts.

I hear these guys have declared official war on each other. Something about guns being pulled during a Marines funeral. We have some of the WBVMC here in my town, they hang out with everyone and are friendly with everyone, but I have seen them throw a beating at a strip club, so I do not take there smiles as weakness, maybe VNV should not take them so lightly either.

If you do not ride, you have NO CLUE what you are talking about. The MC world is different than the rest of the world. The way business is handled was writtem many years ago, and it works. If you don't afree or don't like it - stay the hell out of the MC world and this forum thread. It does not concern you, and you would not understand if it did. The parties involved understand, the dominate club understands, and I understand. You'll never understand.
Oh by the way - if you want to call someone a bozo or a clown - at least be man enough to say it to their face. I'm sure they will properly educate you.
nice email. you have to understand the 1% clubs do not agree with any of our vet clubs fighting with each other. they actually try to stop all of it. but when you got clubs like vnv and leg/vets not even respecting the 1% guys, which are mostly good guys, this crap will never stop, somebody will, really get hurt. most clubs want to ride and be left alone, but some wont let that happen, and its not 1% guys, rocky

the reason the vnv are fighting with us is cause we are a big vet club that wont bow down to their nonsence. we also stick up for the little vet clubs against them and they dont like that either. there on there why out because most 1% clubs have had enough of them. They have so many guys in their club that have never seen the coast of the republic of,( viet nam) its not even funny. we have tryed to have piece with them, but they always go back on their word. we want to be left alone and ride are bikes in piece. They dont want it that way so this war will continue on their part, and we will do what it takes to defend ourselves. they even went as low as to pull guns on wbvmc at a dead marines funeral at a cemetery where the wbvmc was the only vet club invited and told them to leave or they would killed right where they stand. this is at a funeral mind you around the fort meyers area of florida. that sure is honoring are fallen heroes.If that doesn"t show you how they act nothing will. funnyman you sound like a good guy, rocky

Thanks man. I chateed with the couple of members that I know here, Smooth and Jammer, I have been curious about riding with you guys. I tried to ask them about the situation and one kind of ignored the question and the other politely told me that it was club buisness and that I should keep out it. The thing that caught me was neither one of them said anything bad about any club. They just said it is what it is, and quickly moved the conversation into another direction. I will not lie and say I have never spoken with VNV MC about possibly becoming a member, but started right off about talking about money for this and that. I have asked them if they had any problems with any other clubs and they listed quite a few military/vet clubs and even some of the big boys. I thought that was awkward but what do I know. They also tried to be real tough with me and that is fine because that is the biker image, but I have never seen WBVMC through thier weight around and the ones that I know are bouncers at the bar I frequent. I am not sure if I am ready to be apart of any club right now but I am going to wear my "support your local Warrior" t-shirt with pride.

Much Respect to WBVMC

if you can find a collection of "easyrider" magazines from 79 or 80 somewhere in that timeframe you will find ads to send in money and join a new mc "the vietnam vets mc" in fact you could even get a group to do so and start your own "chaptr"

To the VMC members duking it out on keyboards, the result is a bizarre and probably inaccurate picture of you all.

Guys, give it a rest. Please. It's embarrassing to watch and nothing will get settled here.

To those who have honorably served in the military, thank you and welcome home.

What a bunch of sorry ass clowns in here... Well I guess I'll join the circus and spew a few words of my own... First off I wanted to give a shout out to FOG "Friggin Old Goat" the SAD (Self Appointed Director) of the MRA now known as the MRA-TSB (Motherf***ing Rat Alliance of Tattletailing Snitches-n-Bitches, what up BRO (Bend Right Over). I also want to say hello to my doughnut eating friend LMAO (Lawman Making an Ass Outtahimself) what a wing nut, your definitely a 10-96 case. Ohh lets not forget GRAMPS, you ass munching whore why don't ya go skinny dipping in a Tar Pit ya friggin Geritol eating Dinosaur. Ohh Hey Jammer I don't want to leave you out, or should I call you Sgt James B. Shelton USMC, ya hey how's it goin? Keep those Marines re-up'in! Anywho make damn sure you do your homework next time kid, maybe then I won't think your such a fool. And to my good friend Batman... your continual disrespecting, half truths and flat out lies is what got you all here in the first place. If the men in the WB only knew the truth about their leaders track records there wouldn't have been any issues that now may never be worked out. Talk shit, get hit. And for all the WB out there, hold your members, especially your "elected" leaders accountable for their words and actions. But hey what do I know? I'm just a poser who likes to ride off other peoples shirt tails. Thanks for letting me make an ass outta myself on this "thread". Paaa-lease...

Man, it's scary to think this thread has been running since November 18th.

Please, get on with it, over it or whatever it takes. Maybe move to a "biker" forum.

This is making bikers sound a lot like a bunch of gossipy 'ol women.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
