The American Legion Riders are active members of the American Legion Family including Legionnaires, members of the American Legion Auxiliary and members of the Sons of the American Legion. Chapter 323 participates in Parades, fundraising rides, flaglines to welcome home our Heroes and Memorial Services to lay them to rest. We have two Annual Poker Runs, are actively involved with the Patriot Guard Riders and ride in support of all of the programs of the American Legion.
We are a driving force for education of the youth of our country. To that end, our members participate in the Department of Florida’s in-state Legacy Ride which supports the American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund – a program which provides a full college scholarship to surviving children of Veterans who have died on or since September 11, 2001.
Additionally, we are actively involved in the American Legion’s Oratorical contest. The Oratorical Contest presents participants with an academic speaking challenge that teaches important leadership qualities, the history of our nation’s laws, the ability to think and speak clearly, and an understanding of the duties, responsibilities, rights and privileges of American citizenship. Winners at the local level can advance to District, Regional, State and National competitions.
Yes, we’re bikers. Yes, we wear leathers and many of us are tattooed. But we’re also proud Americans who work hard and, every day, provide service to the Community, State and Nation – For God and Country
