In Country Vietnam Motorcycle Club

Brotherhood

We are 'in country' veterans of the Vietnam War, each of us having served at least one tour of duty in Vietnam. We have all earned the Vietnam Service Medal, and our membership includes representatives from each of the Armed Forces of the United States. We represent all races and ethnic groups, and we enjoy the camaraderie of our brothers in arms, and the healing and friendship of being with others who've shared the same experiences. The In Country MC is a wholly benevolent not-for-profit federally tax-exempt war veterans motorcycle club. Our motto is "Vets Helping Vets" and our purpose is to provide moral, mental, and physical support to our brothers and sisters as well as other veterans, their families, widows, and children. We may also assist other members of the community who need financial, emotional, and personal support.

We are always there with a "WELCOME HOME - JOB WELL DONE!" for the Vietnam veteran who has never heard it from the public or family who didn't want to recognize his participation in the war. Each chapter has a chosen veterans cause they must support through annual fund raising events and charitable work. We exist because there is a need for US! Join today by contacting us or any ICVMC brother.

History

The IN COUNTRY VETERANS MC was conceived and founded in late 1994 by a small group of Vietnam veterans in Illinois who had served in-country, and wanted to ride together in a motorcycling brotherhood with a desire to support and assist each other, other veterans, veterans widows and dependents, and other members of the community. The club is wholly benevolent in purpose and organization. Following appropriate protocols, the founders met with the senior clubs in their area and received approval to wear the patch they had designed - an IN COUNTRY VETS top rocker, a stylized version of the Vietnam Service Medal as a center patch, an MC patch, and their unit ID as a bottom rocker.

A Constitution and Bylaws were drawn up, and the club was incorporated as a not-for-profit war veterans MC in Illinois. In line with their motto of "Vets Helping Vets", they applied for, and were granted an IRS 501c(19) federal tax exempt status. In the more than fifteen years since the club was founded, it has grown to include members, chapters, and charters all over the U.S., and in 2002, the first International chapter was formed, comprised of Vietnam veterans living in Germany. In 2007, the top rocker was changed to simply read IN COUNTRY.
