George Washington once said:
“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive veterans of early wars were treated and appreciated by our nation.”
Brothers-in-Arms Motorcycle Club honors, respects and cares for those who have served, will serve and are serving in our nation’s armed forces. We combine our common passion for motorcycling with supporting local veterans and military organizations to give back to the community that has served us so well. BIAMC has members from all branches of service: Coast Guard, Navy, Marines, Army and Air Force. Our members are retirees, active duty and combat veterans. Our ranks have served around the world in conflicts from Vietnam to OIF/OEF. We have members currently serving in conflicts in the Middle East. We ride for them, and for all the others who have bravely sacrificed for our beloved country.
For those who went before, For those yet to come, We serve.
Established in 2002 in Seattle, WA, the Brothers In Arms Motorcycle Club was formed to fill the needs of its founding members to have a Motorcycle Club specifically for Veterans and Active Duty members of all United States military services that was not affiliated with any other organization. BIAMC holds to that original foundation, accepting members from all branches of military service who have served honorably and who currently serve in active, reserve or retired status. All members must own and operate a cruiser style motorcycle capable of maintaining highway speeds with an engine displacement of at least 650cc.
Aside from our love of motorcycles and a healthy respect for each other’s service to our country and now to our club, our primary focus is helping Veterans and their support systems (family and caregivers) through charitable donations and activities. Veterans helping Veterans.
Since that inception, our membership has grown to embrace multiple communities throughout the country, so much so that we found it necessary, and healthy, to break apart into multiple chapters, each focusing on there own communities of veterans, but never claiming territory. The Puget Sound Chapter holds the proud distinction of being the Original Chapter, the place from which the club sprouted and continues to grow today.
