VIET NAM VETS LEGACY VETS
NEW BRAUNFELS TEXAS
WE ARE VETERANS OF THE UNITED STATES
We are sons, we are fathers, but most importantly, we are Brothers. This status is something held near and dear to us. It takes a special man to serve in the United States Military. It takes an even better man to be a Brother in the Viet Nam Vets Legacy Vets Motorcycle Club. Being a veteran is the first step, but it takes much more than just a DD214. It takes heart, perseverance and the desire to serve your Brother at a moments notice before yourself. Above all else, you have to be willing to stand with Brothers of like mind for what’s right.
IN THE BEGINNING
When returning from Vietnam, the veterans found themselves not welcomed home with open arms, but were met by protests, being spat on, and the public disowned them from society. This wasn’t the worst of it. When returning, new stresses were formed in the family dynamic. Family members didn’t know how to react to their veterans return, but much worse, most didn’t care as they didn’t see it as a real War. The WAR was real, many of our Brother service members gave the ultimate sacrifice. Unpopular or not, the War cost many in different ways. Ultimately, the only support the vets could find was solace in each other.
Today there are TWO patches within club, the Viet Nam Vets and the Legacy Vets Motorcycle Club (VNVLV MC). These are two different patches but it is all one club. It is the responsibility of the Legacy Vets to not only continue the club, preventing its eventual extinction, but to carry on the legacy that the Viet Nam Veteran Brothers have started. This isn’t just a responsibility, but an honor for those that do this to date, and into the future.
