What is a Brother?
The Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club USA is
an international organization with members in Europe, Canada and the
United States. We are made up of both in-country and Vietnam-era vets.

unique Biker Brotherhood: The Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club.

demonized by the media, some veteran groups, and the public.
Most Vietnam Veterans decided to blend back into society, by attempting
to hide their Vietnam service. Others refused to hide, and many of them
became bikers, and remained FREE MEN.
