You are clueless.
The Legacy Vets are a club not a gang. If you dont know all of the circumstances and events, that caused my Brothers to have to react, then you should keep your ignorant opinions to yourself.
SBMC - let me guess at this one "Second Brigade MC" - that makes me laugh, I would never consider the LVMC a support club (they are VETS), but you clowns are a joke. Hiding behind a real club to get the OK to wear a patch that is just so sad.

Nobody said anything about a support club, dick breath. But appearantly you think you know about the inner workings of the MC world. You also seem to think you know about the Red & Black. Obviously you only know from what youve seen on television.

Well, shit bag, looks to me like the only hiding going on is you hiding behind your computer. Nobody in the Red & Black is hiding like you. So come on out from behind your keyboard and introduce yourself to one of us in person... if you have the balls.

Last responce to you, chicken shit.

I just started a Veteran Motorcycle Riders Group in Illinois. we are The Leatherneck Veteran Riders of America. I used to be with The Leathernecks MC here. The VNVMC has treated me with respect, because I don't pretend to be an MC Club.
But if you want to wear that MC Cube, then you'll have to deal with it. I just formed our group to ride with Marines and Help Vets who need us. But some guys want that MC World. That is their choice.
I have a lot of Respect for real MC Clubs. They have been doing this along time. I have no desire to compete with them. They have their World, and I have mine.

I have it on good authority that a similar incident took place just this past weekend at the cabbage patch. No less than eight Legacy Vets MC patchholders approached 4 members of another vet club and tried the same old crap. however in this instance, things did not go so well for them.(1 LV got choked out) it was actually pretty funny.

You got the story right, I was there. The LV that got choked out attacked the only member of the other vet club who had his ol lady on the back of his bike. The LV's started it and the other vet club (I wish I could remember the name!) finished it.

Sounds to me like the Legacy Vets finally got what is coming to them, maybe this is just the tip of the iceberg!. That's pretty typical of them from what I understand, attacking the only guy with an ol lady, and only confronting others when their numbers are superior. I don't even know how they call themselves a military club, some of their chapters don't even require military service to be members. I have also personally witnessed them turn their backs on a color guard flown by another military motorcycle club in a parade, not far from where this recent incident happened. I had to attempt to explain to my son (a United States Marine) why a "military motorcycle club" would turn their backs on another flying the US flag in a color guard honoring wounded US veterans (my son). Maybe some of you Legacy Vets out there could explain this to me and my son. If you are really veterans of the United States I am ashamed of you and what you stand for! You claim to be about veterans and veterans rights but you pull chickenshit stuff like this. You can deny, cause diversions and attempt to take yourselves out of the spotlight, but the evidence and facts speak for themselves. I know that's hard to believe right, and there will be plenty who deny these incidents take place but I have pictures to prove it. There is no denying it and I am not sure how the VNV an honorable era veterans club could even continue to be affiliated with you.

Ye Who Knows,
What you fail to realize is that the WBVMC is the "man". From what one member told me is that they have cops in their club all over. Not a big deal but I hope they don't pull the badges out when things don't go their way. My thing is if you are a cop be a cop but don't live your fantasies through someone's else lifestyle. That's chickenshit to me.

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.

My question to you is why were you taking pictures of this during honor guard? Sounds like your an idiot too.

Who's the idiot, I said I HAVE pictures, never said who took them, of course being the wizard and wordsmith that you are you probably already knew that. I'll just go back to the idiot corner with the rest of the educated people who can read. Great attempt at a diversion though, do you work for Obama? If not you should apply, I heard he's looking for someone to run some numbers.

Sorry about that man. I will say this, that was a pretty low blow with the Obama working thing though. No need to hit below the belt for some misunderstanding. I'd be curious to see these pictures though. I can't see any vet regardless of club void the flag. I know some of those guys down here in FL and they've been always but honorable. I'm sure they like any organizations have their zingers but I wouldn't classify any club etc... on the "few".

Okay, low blow, I apologize. I will have to see about getting some pics posted on the net somewhere and provide a link here for anyone who might be interested. Although I agree with not judging a bunch of eggs based on a few rotten ones, if you allow those rotten ones to remain part of the group they will contaminate the whole batch eventually.

VNV/LVMC is a DD214 club. You can write but can't read. Their websites CLEARLY state DD214 required.

Well, let's get one thing straight, I am not talking about the VNV MC, I am strictly talking about LVMC. But of course if their website says so, and it's on the internet it HAS to be true then right?! I KNOW for a fact of at least one chapter of LVMC that doesn't require members to have a DD214, they allow people into the club without military service and call them something like "legacy members". Of course, you obviously know more than I because you read their website information, so I will leave it at that "Vet in the know".

As far as the DD214 goes, I can say that the VNV/LVMC make up the rules as they go along in the south eastern US. They are willing to accept just about anybody with a bike. It seems like all they are trying to do is grow their numbers. I have done some unique work in my life, and I can tell you I would rather have 1 good brother next to me over 1,000 idiots on bikes any day.

no we are not territorial and if you dont know anything about living a life wearing a three piece patch then shut your mouth and if you have a problem with that then you can come and find me and we are not wannabe 1%ers we are who we are and if you dont like that then the hell with you and anyone else who dont like us we arent here to please you so hows that for you

The VNV and Legacy Vets are a wannabe 1% motorcycle club. Although they say they are not "territorial", in their web site, they are infact very dangerous to other Veteran Motorcycle Clubs. I personally seen them in action. Law abiding Veteran Motorcycle Clubs, one, two and three piece patch clubs/riding groups, must unite to survive these home grown terriost. All Veterans must not support their motorcycle runs, functions, parties, etc. That's how they financially survive. Otherwise, you (Veteran) are just as much a terriost (indiretly) as the VNV and Legacy Motorcycle Club. I am a Vietnam Vet. My younger brother is also a Vietnam Vet. My Older brother is also a Vietnam Vet. My son is currently in IRAQ serving his 2nd tour.
