A Statement from the CVMA® National Website
"We are an Association of Combat Veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces who ride motorcycles as a hobby. As a registered 501(c)(19) veterans’ charity, our mission is to support and protect those who have defended our country and our freedoms. Our focus is to provide assistance and help to individual veterans, veteran care facilities, other veteran organizations and registered charities. We sponsor and participate in many veteran-related motorcycle (and other) charity events each year, and as a non-profit organization, donate to various veteran causes. Our Mission Statement is Veterans Helping Veterans.
Our membership is comprised of Full Members (those with verified combat service), Supporter Members (those who have non-combat military service and have a strong dedication to helping veterans), and Auxiliary Members (Spouses of both Full and Support members). We have members from all 50 states and numerous countries abroad, including combat areas.
Please note that we are an ASSOCIATION and NOT a MOTORCYCLE CLUB (MC). Although we may be in a geographic area, we do not claim territory. We do not have a clubhouse. We do not wear cuts or colors, but rather vests. The patch on our back is one piece."

What We Do in Arkansas
In conjunction with the CVMA® mission statement of Veterans Helping Veterans, we work through our chapter and with other chapters in Arkansas to raise money for local Veterans and charities to help improve their quality of life in the region we support.
We do this through hosting and participating in local events throughout the year. We have a great time doing this and encourage everyone to participate, Veteran or not. It is always good to see the public and other organizations turn out for our events to celebrate the freedom we all enjoy together.
In addition to our own events, we often participate in other biking-related events like runs and rallies to raise awareness for our organization and meet new people. Spur-of-the-moment group rides are not uncommon either when a few members feel the need for a little wind therapy and a run to some local hotspots.
