I wasn't going to make any more posts on this thread but this one deserves a comment. You better go check your history out youngster before you start making claims like that one. Are you the spokesman for the VNVMC? When Rolling Thunder allowed the VNVMC to lead the Ride to the Wall the VNVMC wasn't what it is today. Most of the VNVMC were honorable men then. 20 years can change who and what an organization becomes as shown by the actions of the VNVMC in Florida recently. Go back and read your National website and then come back on here and tell us that everything that is written there is the truth like not getting into other club's business, and being non territorial. Maybe it was true in the beginning but now the propaganda on the VNVMC website is just that, propaganda BS. Maybe Rolling Thunder should rethink who leads The Ride to the Wall and put a club in front who has the honor and the intergrity to hold that valued position. The VNVMC has shown that they are not by not coming out and making a statement about what happened on Veterans Day in Florida. If they were honorable men they(National VNVMC) would have apologized to every veteran who every served for the actions of those that took place on OUR DAY. By not doing that I think we all know who the VNVMC really are. I can see that reading anymore of this crap is just a waste of my time.
Yes you are wasting you poor old time. Never know how long you'll be on this earth. And if your neighbor messed with your family what would you do.. Call the COPS or try and take care of it yourself.. YOu would call the COPS!
THe VNV/LV MC haven't said a thing just everyone else you doesn't know the issues. So why should the Nat. VNV/MC apoligize for anything but that you people don't know these guys who servered their country and were treated like shit when they got home. And here ya'll doing the same thing. Think about it..

I think if any of the VNV/legacy Vets were active duty or national guard members they should be punish under the UCMJ. There should be a law under the UCMJ against active military joining the VNV/Legacy MC. This might not stop this foolishness but atleast they will no longer be able to recruit members of our military. Write your congressmen about this!!!

If you look there is an article that is a "catch all" article of the UCMJ that covers all areas of conduct unbecoming. This is article 134. However if everyman is judged because who they ride with, then you must judge others for what faiths they believe in. Many in the MC world go to "church" many MC's are listed as a a church organization. Therefore requesting that anyone being judged on who they ride with may be harder to accomplish than you think. If you succeed you are giving more power to the goverment and taking less responsiblity for yourself(not you in general just the populous).

I'll just say this, I have read the posts on your buddy, Joe from a few sites. He was thrown out of one club, started problems internally with WBMC, has a big mouth, dishonorably discharged which in my eyes is the lowest of low. BOTTOM LINE, IF YOU LIVE WITH SH$%, YOU SMELL LIKE SH@# so you must be SH@#. ha/ha.
Another instance of someone talking out of their butt. I have been in Joe's house many times and seen his bronze star, a air medal with V on his wall, along with his discharge. He was discharged honorably. He never threatened anyone. That was another individual that has mental problems, that no one that knows him pays any attention to. Jow has paid out of pocket over 100,000.00 in an effort to help Vets, and in return, got beaten by a bunch of felons.

What's your point? If this guy has a honorable discharge so what. It's the fact he was beaten by a pack on Veterans Day. You are from your posts, pro VNVMC or VNVMC and Don't care that Vets beating up Vets on OUR special days just******* sucks. You can whip this horse all day, but the facts are out there..The VNVMC and the whatever their Legs? Oh yes, they SUPPORT Vietnam Veterans, I keep forgetting they are a club too? Did something on a day when its reserved for SPECIAL Veterans Events. Hey, they had plenty of other days to pick from to do..lets say business. They are NOT making friends and that = NO RESPECT in the long run. If they keep this up, veterans will not want to join them but they will get the lower crop of Troops what you don't need in any MC. The leadership is trying to turn it over but to who and who have they learned? If I was a young man, I would look at a 1% club. They have class acts and THEY started it all. IF you what action, that is where its at and they need young MEN! The government is the enemy but these guys what to be the Bog Dog of the Vets MC world. Personally, I look for the US Military Vets MC to overtake them at some point as they have a class act. Its BEING noticed..Good for them. Back to whipping this Blog again to death!

You are totally right. Keep the AD folks out of the club and MC world. We should also keep our children out of the military too. Because on Navy ships, the crips/bloods are taking over and in the army, white supremists are joining. They are also raping and killing in Iraq. Most of you are all idiots. Go to biker news and see what VNV Vets are doing around the country, fund raising, etc... I admit their choice of day wasn't the best but to jump on some band wagon is too funny. I'll bet you don't have the guts to them that to their face. I guess maybe they looked at opportunity than your feelings, Taxpayer. Perhaps,give them your number so they can call you and ensure your feelings won't be hurt. Who knows, maybe they'll invite you to the party when the next big mouth opens his mouth.

Then I guess your buddy Joe gets the stupid award for wearing the same patch as the other guys i.e. Rocky/Jammer. Maybe now he'll wear a blue bandana and go into the bloods neighborhood. ha/ha. I've been to VNV MC runs and it looks like they donate alot of their time and money as well. So what?

I guess what people fail to realize from reading articles from different websites is that the WBMC formed, had some a@#holes in it, ran their mouth, split, didn't have enough guts to be a real club and clean their own house and VNV MC is getting the blunt of it because they had the guts to clean house. Good job VNV, the people knocking you are the same yellow bellies from Nam days. This only makes me realize even more how WBMC is a real bunch of sissies that they are to scared to have an internal meeting and clean house. I guess that's what you get from a mail-order club.

It is funny, I know guys from both clubs you mentioned there and you congratulate one and direspect the other, yet do you belong to either? Remember all societies are set up perfect, however humans run them, so perfection goes out the door. You speak as an educated man and even make some good points. But then you tell people to give out thier number so VNV can call them up why don't you do the same, let either club call you. If all you are is a civillian looking in why pour gas on the fire, why call out peoples names like Joe, Rocky, or Jammer? Do you know them personally, do you have the guts to stand toe to toe with one of them, before you answer think about that. Just because you are defending one club does not mean you should tear down another.

After reading all of the comments left about this Veterans Day scuffel a few questions come to mind. First : Why would the VNV take the time on Veterans Day for such a thing? I am sure they had better things planned. Why is it that several other members of thr WB not beaten like their leader was? It seems to me it was MC business and he might have had it coming for things he was doing in the MC world. It also sounds like many of you, like me, know nothing about the MC world should refrain from further comments on something you and I know Nothing about.
What goes around, comes around and it seems it came full circle on poor old Joe. Maybe he should take up a new hobby??

You need to go back to school and learn how to spell and the proper use of grammer before you jump on a forum and write things that make absolute no sense. What is your age anyway,12..maybe 13? To try and justify what the the VNVMC did on Veteran's Day by blaming it on the American public back in the late 60's is really a stretch of your intelligence. Many of us came home in the 60's to an America that was unhappy with the war in Viet Nam but most of us got on with our lives.
Sounds like the VNVMC might need to visit the VA to have their oil checked. I think they are running a few quarts low. All humor aside.
I will answer your question. If I or my family/my home is ever attacked by a domestic terrorist like the VNVMC this will be the proceedure. A call to 911, put a shell in the chamber of my M&P 40 Cal. and do the same with my 12 gauge shorty pump while opening the door to let my dog out.
I came back to this country in 1967. I walked down a crowded street called White Hall Street on Dec. 7th
(Pearl Harbor Day)in New York City in my Class A Greens. There were over 8,000 protestors on that street, that day, burning draft cards and our flag. I walked down street alone and I didn't blink once.
So, before you start making smart remarks about my post you better walk the walk, you better have BTDT (Been There Done That). BTW, I was wearing my Green Beret.
What happened on Veterans Day was a insult to all Veterans in this country and you can take the biker MC code of ethics and put it where the sun don't shine. There are still allot of us honorable vets out here that have a real problem with a bunch of bullies who call themselves veterans. They obviously have forgotten what it's all about. Your turn.

You can buy medals, but you can't buy the citations that go with them, and you can't buy an honorable discharge. All of crap about Joe is just your way of trying to justify your actions to the citizens. Joe is an honorable, and a GOOD man. If you don't know him, you need to keep your comments about his character and his military service to yourselves. No amount of blab can change any of the facts.

I hear ya! I agree on both counts. The media has never told the "whole" story, about anything. And a true "brother" would never sit back and watch. Right or wrong.
