American Legion Riders chapters are often well known for their charitable work, which has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local children's hospitals, schools, veterans homes, severely wounded servicemembers and scholarships. Since 2006, Riders nationwide have participated in the Legion Legacy Run, to annually raise money for the Legacy Scholarship Fund, established to provide scholarships to children of U.S. military personnel killed since Sept. 11, 2001.
Currently, 106,000 American Legion Riders meet in over a thousand chapters in every domestic department and in at least three foreign countries. Riders in Iowa have formed an honor guard called The Five Star Freedom Riders, and Riders in Mulvane, Kan., founded the Patriot Guard to protect the sanctity of military funerals from protesters. Riders in all states have escorted military units returning home from combat tours overseas, conducted massive cross-country fundraising events for wounded warriors from all services, and have raised millions of dollars for countless local, state and national charities.
Annual dues of $12.00 are collected from each member. If members are not paid by the February meeting they will be dropped from the register and will need to re-join as new members. The ALR is very active in P0st 28 activities including dinners. Please consider helping us by attending and/or donating time with these activities. Rides and activities are posted on the ALR bulletin board located next to the kitchen entrance in the main dinning hall. Thank you! Click here for the membership form.
