OVMA members come from all military backgrounds riding together to celebrate their service and the service of all veterans past, present and future
Our country is indebted to its military families and those that guard our freedom and interests. At Oregon Veterans Motorcycle Association, we believe as a community and as individuals, it is our duty to be there for veterans that have fallen on hard times.
Founded in 1990 by veterans looking to build brotherhood, help veterans and enrich their communities.
We honor all Veterans, past, present and future.
We ride to honor out fellow veterans that have made the ultimate sacrifice.
We ride in solidarity and keep the flag held high for those that have not yet returned home.
We stand with pride to welcome home our service men and women as the return from foreign lands.
As veterans we ride together, laugh, cry and hold our memories tight. The bonds that hold us together can never be broken. .
Veterans who wish to become a member must attend a State or Chapter meeting, fill out a membership application, present a copy of their DD Form 214 demonstrating an other than dishonorable discharge and pay the annual dues.
Active members of the armed forces who wish to become members follow the same guidelines as above and will need to show a current military ID card in place of a DD Form 214. They are exempt from paying annual dues.
The State/Chapter President or his/her designated officer will review documents to verify eligibility.
Annual Dues are $20 per year. Veteran members who have been members ‘In Good Standing’ for no less than two (2) years are eligible to become ‘Life Members.’ Life Member dues are $150. If a Life Member resigns for any reason or is removed from the OVMA membership rolls for any reason, no
refund will be made.

We would not be able to help Veterans in need without the help of many non-Veteran supporters. We have supporters that ride with us, participate in and or volunteer at our events, or just provide financial support. We use out Friends of OVMA Facebook group to keep members and supporters up to date on our activities.
