Department of Illinois Commander, Fritz Mihelcic (right) receives an honorary membership in the VFW Vander Clute Riders Group during the 75th anniversary of Caseyville Memorial Post 1117. Commander Mihelcic is a long-time motorcyclist and the VFW Vander Clute Riders Group is proud of his accomplishments. (Presenting the VFW Riders patch and Vander Clute Riders ribbon is Tom "Squirts" Clark, current Chairman of the VFW Vander Clute Riders Group)

I'd really like to see a larger interactive presence on the web for ALL VFW Rider Groups. I've attempted to collect the VFW Riders links to the different Groups and bring them all together on my personal webpage. Feel free to look around and if I can help any Comrade in starting a new VFW Riders Group in their Post, just give me a holler. Respects 'n take care out there. Tom "Squirts" Clark; Chairman, VFW Vander Clute Riders Group, Illinois.

Hey there all... I'm located out here in California and am looking to try and get a VFW riders group going at our local post. I know about the VFW MC that is located in my state but have no desire to do the whole prospecting into a club thing. Besides the fact that they are located several hours from me. So my question is how do I go abiut getting a riders group started. We have fairly low member numbers at our post but there are several members who ride and I know some members at large and some eligible folks as well who might be interested. Any advise would be great.

who ever had the post I was responding too since deleted it. wasnt so much the patch than the vfw somewhere was demanding money from bikers. also Im in no way a representive of sons of anarchy, I dont even watch tv. just sayin

I think that vfw is def heading toward the majority riders that still can especially since entering the korean war, and vietnam war eras as well as modern conflicts and alot rather excercise thier freedom to ride. Dues like any other would naturally be included in whatever dues already collected. With all the other fund raiser and recruiter activities. Thats pretty much my two cents on the matter. 

Comment by Steve Wade on April 17, 2013 at 10:11pm

not really sure where the right to wear cross came from, but I was addressing the comment of paying dues to vfw and any $ at all to vfw, though people can certianly donate if they want too, vfw is not affliated with any riders groups that I know of  let alone demand any $, though there is alot of riders that are members of the vfw. You can get the riders vest patches right out the catalog. I just dont think vfw demands or even cares about the dues though wouldnt suprise me that it will happen one day.

Kim is 100% correct.  As a member of the VFW you have the RIGHT the wear the Cross of Malta.  The only thing that National did, on Aug 29th, 2011, was grandfather the California VFW-MC as the only MC allowed to wear the Cross of Malta.  Because of a few numskulls in other states who thought they were Sons of Anarchy and wore the Cross of Malta as part of their MC Colors, National was ready to do away with ALL MC's.  Our Department went to bat for us and we now celebrate Aug 29th annually.  But they never mentioned Riders Clubs, which is what most VFW groups are anyways.   

Personally I think having an a Post/District/Department Riders Club is a fantastic way to get positive exposure for the VFW while providing a hook to attract a lot of the younger Vets to join and STAY involved with the VFW. 


I also wish that National would allow more VFW-MC's but I think that time isn't here yet...
