American Legion Riders


Arriving at the NYS Veterans' Home at Oxford in October of 2018

The American Legion Riders are well known to participate in local events in support of The American Legion and local communities. They will ride to honor fallen military men and women, and to protect the sanctity of their funerals from those who would dishonor their memory, as well as escorting military units to departure airfields and airports for combat tours overseas, and welcoming them home upon their return.

They will often sponsor or participate in motorcycle runs to benefit numerous charities including raising money for VA hospitals, women and children centers, children and youth centers, schools and other facilities. 

14th Annual Poker Run!

The American Legion Riders is conducting its 14th annual benefit motorcycle Poker Run on Saturday, May 18th, 2019, to help raise money for the Landstuhl Hospital Care Project (LHCP). We need your help and donations to make it a success.

Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (LRMC) in Germany is the largest American military hospital outside the United States. LRMC is the main treatment facility for our seriously injured combat veterans, once they are evacuated from operational areas. Many of these brave individuals arrive in Germany directly from the battlefield – no clothing, no shoes and definitely no comfort or hygiene items.
See this PDF for more information on sponsoring.
