Greetings and Salutations to all Brothers, Prospects, Support, and those checking out who we are.
Still adjusting to our new way of living with a six year old. She is full of energy and very independent- loves her motorcycle boots, Levi jacket. Rock & Roll, and wants a motorcycle! She's up to wanting some scrambled eggs, getting me to warm up the pan and stepping back while she cracks the eggs, stirs them up, then loads them on her plate- not bad!
The biggest challenge is the hours- we're adapting as best we can, as we're kind of night owls. It's another adventure.
The bike is still on hold- custom clutch cables are always short of supply. I've wanted to have my mechanic friend take it to his garage and do the work as well as replacing a new front tire.
I look at my cut with pride, the patches and what they mean to me- Brotherhood, Remembrance, Persistence, and Honor.
We run the Nomad rocker for a reason- each of us have the qualities of leadership, protection, mentoring, empathy, reason, and the great trait of seeing through the smoke and seeing the truth. So, in essence we are our own chapter of one no matter where we roam.
The cooler months are upon us, time to plan, wrench, and dream of the coming year on the open road ready and grinning!
I wish all a warm bed, being well fed, and your heart feeling no dread!
LLRBF,
Sling Blade NSAA

Greeting Brother, Supports, Prospects & well-wishers!!

Well Old Man Winter came in hard yesterday, 16 degrees and first snow. But then first snow in mid-November is one of the reasons I changed AOs.

Spent Marine Corps Birthday/Veteran's Day weekend down in Wilmington NC. Visiting a very good friend I've not seen in too long. Also toured the USS North Carolina. Very impressive!!

Ordered a new Baker 6-speed gear set for Black Betty, hopefully that comes in soon and I can get it and some other minor things done.

Other than that, just hanging out waiting on warmer weather and definitely looking forward to this year's National Run. Hoping and praying many more Brothers can make it this year.

Oh, please note my e-mail address change. I'd started getting lots of spam on the yahoo.com account

Guess that's all, wanted to let everyone know I'm still alive and kicking.

LLRBF

PS, Biker is really getting bit. Friendliest cat I've ever seen

Hey everybody! The holiday baking has begun. I just put a Fireball Pumpkin pie in the oven. Can't wait to see what it tastes like! The batter was pretty good. 🙂🙃 Still have to make some pralines and a Hawaiian Cake. Already have a apple crumb and a pecan pie in the freezer. Oh what fun I'm going to have. LOL. Well, that's what is going on in my world. Hope y'all have a great Thanksgiving!

welcome home brothers, I've been looking for a real brotherhood to ride and spend time with, brothers of my age and experience. I have riding experience with two clubs, one a VMC and the other a 1%-er, but neither were what I was looking for. I love the camaraderie, I love being in the uniform atmosphere, I retired with 23 years in the Army/ Air Force, I love looking out for my brother as he looks out for me. If you think I fit the mold to be a brother in your brotherhood then please send me more info to get this process rolling.

Well, I have been negligent in my responsibilities keeping my entries into the guest book on schedule. So, a little bit. First....Welcome Home Hammer. I have not met you yet, but looking forward to it.
I finally got the clearance from my Dr. to do what ever I wanted without hurting my shoulder. Been out riding the last couple of day. As we all know that is therapy enough. will get a lot more in next week. And this winter. Those that know me , know I don't ever put the trike to bed.
To all of our new Patchholders and support members I say Welcome Home and welcome to the greatest Nam

not only to our club but also to our country

Greetings Patch Holders, Supports, Prospects and Well-Wishers!!

Hope this finds all well or quickly on the mend

Just back from meeting Brother Brelon. Great trip with Brother Grumpy and time with Brother Brelon. Brought home another critter, a 10-week old kitten that had been either lost or abandoned at the hotel. Some people are just jerks. Yes I can be one, but not to animals.

Ride back was pretty wild, Chattanooga to home was Wyoming windy and cold. Plus once back in my AO, traffic got heavier, roads got worse too. Was glad I'm an experience rider.

Wanted to touch base, also WELCOME HOME Brother Hammer!

"TO THOSE WHO HAVE FOUGHT FOR IT, LIFE HAS A FLAVOR THAT THE PROTECTED WILL NEVER KNOW!"



I came upon your site while surfing the net and knew that the above statement would have special meaning for your members. Different units, different areas of training but we all worked together to accomplish the same mission and objective. Vietnam has left us all with many memories of those with whom we served and those who didn’t make it back. I served with 3/22nd, 25th Infantry Division out of Tay Ninh as an infantryman. Fought the NVA on the slopes of Nui Ba Den twice with numerous firefights in and around the area bordering the Cambodian border. Remember your Christmas in Vietnam? Mine was spent on an ambush patrol near the Cambodian border. Awarded Purple Heart and three Bronze Stars with “V”. After 5 months in the field, I was pulled to the 93rd Evac at Long Binh to work with soldiers suffering from combat fatigue. Coming home was one of the most difficult parts of our tours. Over the last 10 years, I chronicled my tour of duty and the response has been overwhelming. There are presently over One Hundred 5 Star Reviews worldwide. It’s free to Amazon Prime members. Courage on the Mountain



Thousands of Vietnam Veterans have proudly endorsed these memoirs. Please check out the website at courageonthemountain.com with the accompanying introduction. It will make you proud for your service and all the men and women who served our country during the Vietnam war.

I proud that you made it home brother! Thank you for your service and May God Bless!

Greetings Brothers, Supports, Prospects & well-wishers.

WHEW, what a Summer; National, another cross-country run to see Son and my Grands, short run to Patch in a new Brother (Welcome Home Brother Wrongway), run to Perryville (Brothers my apologies on not making the target run and MUCH THANKS, LOVE & RESPECT for all the assistance and Brotherhood!); next week another run with East Prez to check on a Brother.

I absolutely love being a part of this MC; I've got an anniversary coming up and I've not regretted a minute of my time in the MC. That is wholly due to the Men who are Giants I ride with and have accepted me into the Club. THANK YOU Brothers.

Greetings Brothers and Sisters!

All's good here in West Virginia. Finally getting a taste of fall...at last!

Our back deck should be getting started tomorrow.. am so excited to see how it and the french doors out of the dining room onto the deck will look!

Still keeping my eyes open looking for a trike. If you hear of any good deals, let me know!

Minor surgery Friday went well. Still sore but on the mend. Doc has been extraordinarily patient. 🙂

That's it for now...Ride safe all!

"Cruiser" from Valdosta Area, Georgia wrote on 09/22/2019 at 7:02 am:
"Greetings and Salutations" is how my first letter came, so I joined Uncle Sam's Canoe Club! I've corresponded with NVMC NVP-Dutch and NVMC N-P Skinner. Wow, stand up individuals for sure!
This morning just north of the Florida/Georgia line I woke to 66 degrees and the driveway alarm going off. After investigating, it was a doe standing there eating acorns that had fallen over night. I guess she wanted an early breakfast before the squirrels go them. I've been riding since I inherited a '50 E-model panhead that I hid from my mom. Dad sold it once I got orders to the USS Kitty Hawk (he said that he doubted they would let me take it with me). I did a couple tours on the "ShittyKitty" as a plane captain (that is Nav-Speak for Air Force Air Crew Chief) operating all over Yankee Station. Whenever one of the squadron's birds got diverted I was the NCO that flew into DaNang, Bien Hoa, Tan Son Nhut and Phan Rang to see what had to be done. I was fortunate enough to also do a 180 day tour with the USN Mobile Riverine Force (MRF) working out of Dong Tam.
After returning to the world I bought a 1976 centennial edition FXE brand new. Never thought I'd ever pay off the $39/mo payments, but I did. Kept it until 1983 when I was at Daytona Bike Week and eyeballed a new FXRS Shovelhead (rubber mount and 5 speed-wow!) at Robinson's HD. This was before a Harley dealer became a "boutique" full of "motorclothes and chrome accessories". I rode that about 180k miles and found that I really needed something better for this old bag of bones so I found a birch white 2000 FLHTP-I which I now have. I stripped the red/blue lights and electrics off of it, got a new seat and pegs and off I go! Other than some lumbar & cervical surgeries, some AO poisoning, age-related macular degeneration and a renegade attitude I figure I am going Okay to be all I can be on a daily basis.
I was in Atlanta when the VNV/MC started up, never joined but was a welcomed guest but pulled away because of other's needs to chest pound and show off. What has drawn me to get information about the NVMC is two fold-Mission Statement and the fact that the NVMC does not involve itself in other MC's business. My phone call with NP-Skinner whet my interest for more. I am not a big "joiner" just for attention seeking. I do not reach for prestige nor praise. I pledge my support to God, my country, my brother before myself. My "cable tow" has two ends (some my understand that phrase). I "H-O-L-D F-A-S-T" on my end. Want to know more about me, please ask.

GREAT TO SEE YOUR POST.THIS IS THE BEST WAY TO GET A READ ON A PROSPECT.LOOK FOR MORE BROTHERS CONTACTING YOU AND EXPLAINING HOW WE ROLE.WELCOME HOME.
Dutch from Montana wrote on 09/20/2019 at 9:34 pm:
Sept. 21, here we go. First day of Fall, seems to happen every year about this time. I'm down to a few weeks till my ride goes up on the lift. I look at it as time to regroup, get things in order, including myself. It's my yearly maintenance, get'n right for next year ! Down South (East & West) your deal'n with "heat", but sure feels like Fall up North.Boss is gear'n up for a Main Event 15 round fight, but we all know who's gonna win that. Vegas Odds give Skinner a heavy lop sided victory over this, and he's got this entire MC in his corner.Give it hell Brother. Spring, come next year, we all will be chomp'n at the bit to hit the road, say'n to ourselves "made another one". 2020 is a big year for the Nam Vets MC, it's when we lay out our path  for the coming years. We all need to do our best to make National.We have lost some Brothers this year, but we have gained some (think it's called "Tread'n Water"), Welcome Home to our Newest Patch Brother WrongWay. You are now an "Original".Want to take a minute to put out a little more info on "Wizard". He is a Vietnam Vet who can no longer ride, yet he wants to Support our Brotherhood, the Nam Vets MC. His wife became ill and he is TCB. The measure of a man is not his circumstance, but how he handles his circumstance. Our Brotherhood is what we are about, if you are a Vietnam Vet, we will make room. We lived it back then and we live it now,We Leave No Man Behind. Good call Boss. Not many Clubs would have done what you have done here, it took Balls & Heart, and we are a better Club because of it !So now, I will look forward to December 21st, and then will tell myself, next stop is Spring........There's gonna be 10 Below Zero Days, 3 Feet of Snow, Shovelin', Snow Blowin', Haul'n Wood, Hours of Sit'n Out in the Garage Talk'n to the Bike,  Weeks without Sun, Aches and Pains and Days You Don't Want to Get Out of Bed, but we will do what we always have done, cause ................. It Don't Mean Nothin'...........Drive On                                                                                                                                          LLRBF
