HISTORY OF THE COMBAT VETERANS MOTORCYCLE ASSOCIATION®

                                           

                                          In the year 1999, the Combat Vets Motorcycle® Club was introduced to the internet. Up                                                  until the first part of 2001 many of us were led to believe it was a true and established                                                motorcycle organization. Through many turns of events it was found out that CVMC                                                      was an internet scam to milk money from Combat Veterans.

                                            In the early months of 2001 many of the members found this scam out & alerted one                                                  another. Since we were all interested in the issues of Veterans, 45 members decided                                                    to form a Combat Veterans Association®. After this was decided, the birth of CVMA®                                                      appeared as a non profit Association on or about May 1st 2001 & we now will be able                                                  to continue with our main objective which is helping Veterans. The 2 main things that     brought us together was motorcycle riding & being Veterans from Combat zones or theaters. The original 45     members have adopted a patch to wear indicating that they are the original founding fathers of CV.

                              In May of 2001 the CVMA® adopted the CVMA®/VFW patch. This was done with the VFW's ok as all

                              CVMA® members were or became VFW members and entitled to wear the VFW patch. Over the                                    next year and a half the CVMA® was well accepted at Post and Division levels with the VFW.                                        Many meetings, conversations and letters over this period with the VFW National always                                            sounded positive but with no results of developing a relationship. In December 2002 the CVMA®                    membership voted to move on towards the Association it wanted to be. Along with this VFW                                      membership was no longer required opening the CVMA® up to all Combat Veterans who ride a                                    motorcycle.

                              On December 15, 2002 it was voted the CVMA® would wear a combination of the CVMA®                                                  background and the old skull logo as a one piece patch. Membership requirements being a                                        new member had to be a Combat Veteran and ride a motorcycle as a hobby. This patch is                                            worn by Full Combat Members only.                   

 

                               On July 11, 2018 32-7 became a full Chapter in Ariziona and adopted a patch to represent

                               the Tri-City area, which services Bullhead City, Kingman and Lake Havasu City.   The skull 

                               represent our ties to Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association®, the Hat is for Arizona, the

                               Train is for the Depot in Kingman and the Steer skull is for the 

                               Desert we live in.
