Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association: Chapter 49-1 - The “Rock” Chapter

We are an Association of Combat Veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces who ride motorcycles as a hobby. It should be known that we are NOT a Motorcycle Club (MC). We respect MCs and what being in an MC represents; however, our mission is solely the support of our fellow veterans. As a 501(c) 19 War Veteran’s Organization our goals and missions consist of:

Support for veterans and veteran organizations; promoting interest in various forms of motorcycle activities associated with veterans; raising awareness of the plight of POWs and MIAs, and the health problems veterans (and their families) face when returning from combat theaters; and conducting functions and activities in a manner consistent with high moral, legal and ethical values. We will endeavor to further camaraderie among persons who are or have been members of the Armed Forces; honor the memory of deceased veterans and members of the Armed Forces and aiding and comforting their survivors; encourage patriotism, and aid hospitalized, disabled and needy war veterans and their dependents.

Our membership is comprised of Full Members (those with verified combat service) and Supporter Members (those who have non-combat military service, and have a sincere dedication to helping veterans). We have chapters in all 50 states and several members living abroad. Many members continue to serve in our Armed Forces, with several serving in combat areas now.

Chapter 49-1 was established in April, 2013, and is based out of Salt Lake City, Utah; however, we have members living across the entire state! We sponsor and/or participate in many motorcycle-related charity events each year, donate to various veteran care facilities and veteran charities, work to build camaraderie among veterans from all branches of service and all conflicts. We support other community events and charities throughout the state as well. If you would like to become a member, please look at the MEMBERSHIP INFO page, and then hit the CONTACT US link.
