The U.S. Military Vets MC National Chapter was established in 1987 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Objectives: The club as a national organization strives to achieve the following:
To provide a club for qualified male military veterans which offers brotherhood and an opportunity to establish relationships with other military veterans who have served in the defense of the United States of America. To establish and support a strong sense of pride in having served in the active military service of the United States of America. To improve the image of military veterans and bikers to the general public.
Minimum requirements to be considered for membership:
a. Males having a DD Form 214 and having served 181 days or more in an active duty status. (Reserve and National Guard members can count active duty for training) Have full rights to veterans benefits and have received an Honorable Discharge from the United States military or be currently on active duty for a period greater than 181 days, or currently in the National Guard or Reserves.
b. Have a Valid Motorcycle Operators License.
c. Active participation in the club.
d. Have a motorcycle with an engine displacement greater than 750 cc.
Prospect and Probate phases:
1. During the Prospect phase an individual will go on runs and attend portions of meetings with the club as a guest. This gives the Prospect a chance to evaluate their desire to belong to this brotherhood, and gives current Patch Holders an opportunity to evaluate the Prospect's personality and compatibility.
2. The Probate phase is longer and gives the opportunity to learn the proper conduct expected of an MC member. It affords the membership the opportunity to evaluate whether the Probate is someone they would consider and depend upon as a brother. During this time the Probate is under the direct supervision of an experienced member whenever wearing the club "rockers".
