We are a veterans group. We support local veterans and their families in our communities.
We are men and women. We are Marines, Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard. We are honorably-serving military: active, reserve or retired. We are police officers, corrections officers, doctors, nurses, business owners, employees, and family members.
We continue to live our lives by the values of the US Armed Forces: honor, courage, and commitment, in that there is no wavering.

We are founded because of the Battle of Belleau Wood. WWI was where all the branches became a joint force. It is also the final resting place for Marines, Navy, Army, and Army Air Corps (which is now called the US Air Force). The image of the Teufelhund came from the fountain in the village of Belleau Wood on a farm close by, where when the smoke cleared, our troops rested and drank from. It is the image of the Teufelhund or Hell Hound.
Are you a riding club?
We are not a riding club. You will not just get a “patch” and be one of us. You will need to meet other club members, attend events with us for veterans, you will prospect, and then be voted in. We do not discriminate against race, sex, occupation, or the type of bike you ride, and never will be under any circumstances.
We are neutral. We support no one other than our families, veterans and the family members of vets. We answer to no one, and we obey the law. We support the Constitution and those who defend it.
