American Legion Riders Prayer

 

                                   We give thanks to You for Your gift and privilege to ride.  To experience the

                                   freedon of spirit; a oneness wih You we feel on the open road.  This we thank

                                   You for because of the grace You have bestowed upon us.  Works cannot

                                   describe the beauty and majesty of Your creation as we ride.  Help us to humbly

                                   appreciate the many blessings You give us as we travel the paths You set before

                                   us.  Keep us safe in Your warm embrace and feel the peace of Your presence as

                                   we ride through life.  As we ride, let us be a beaon and Your humble servant and

                                   be an example of what you would have us be.  Only Your grace and glory have

                                   gotten us to wheere we are.  And we give glory to You, Father.  Knowing You, You

                                   give Your love and protection to us.  And comfort to us as You are always with

                                   us through good rides and bad.  Our life's roads are strewn with twists and turn,

                                   and we know You will always guide us to our final destination.  This and all

                                   things we are grateful for and we praise and give thanks to You, Father. Amen.

The American Legion Riders

Today over 425 American Legion Riders programs, organized by chapters, districts, or departments, support Americanism and Children and Youth programs in virtually every state in the nation, and more are organizing each month. One of the fastest-growing and most highly visible of the many programs offered by The American Legion, The American Legion Riders are a very diverse group, and so are the programs that they support. What do American Legion Riders do? The activities are far too many to mention in this space, but here are a few examples:


American Legion Riders chapters and districts, nationally, have become some of the most generous donors for the American Legacy Scholarship Fund, raising as much as $5,000 or more in a single event.

Legion Riders participate in the annual POW/MIA Rally held each Memorial weekend in Washington D.C. known as "Rolling Thunder".

Legion Riders sponsor or participate in local and national charity events in support of the sponsoring American Legion Post.

Legion Riders ride to raise money for such organizations as local VA Hospitals, Battered Women and Children's Center, Varied Children and Youth programs, a School for Blind Children, Veterans Relief, Needy families and many, many others.

Legion Riders founded a national movement called “Patriot Guard” (www.patriotguard.org) that honors and protects the sanctity of military funerals and memorial services.

Legion Riders have formed special motorcycle Honor Guards and ceremonial teams highlighting the special bonds formed in military service and the motorcycling community.

Legion Riders have also begun to teach motorcycle and driver safety in the community and in schools in cooperation with ABATE and other national motorcycling organizations.

Remember: American Legion Riders are a very dedicated group of Legion Family members. When your Post or district sponsors a new Riders organization, you create a win/win situation for your post, district, and Department!
