Freedom is a thing that people have taken for granted as of late, and many people forget how those freedoms came to be. Here at VRC our mission is to recognize those brave men and women that will never forget the costs of freedom. Although many great strides have been made to see that our nations veterans receive the proper recognition they deserve, there are still many miles to go.
REAL PEOPLE MAKING A REAL DIFFERENCE
Information about the CVMA and our chapter:
Our (32-1) Public Facebook page
YouTube video of what we did in the last year:
CVMA National Page : We are an Association of Combat Veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces who ride motorcycles as a hobby. As a registered 501(c)(19) veterans’ charity, our mission is to support and protect those who have defended our country and our freedoms. Our focus is to provide assistance and help to individual veterans, veteran care facilities, other veteran organizations and registered charities. We sponsor and participate in many veteran-related motorcycle (and other) charity events each year, and as a non-profit organization, donate to various veteran causes. Our Mission Statement is Veterans Helping Veterans.
Our membership is comprised of Full Members (those with verified combat service), Supporter Members (those who have non-combat military service and have a strong dedication to helping veterans), and Auxiliary Members (Spouses of both Full and Support members). We have members from all 50 states and numerous countries abroad, including combat areas.
Please note that we are an ASSOCIATION and NOT a MOTORCYCLE CLUB (MC). Although we may be in a geographic area, we do not caim territory. We do not have a club house. We do not wear cuts or colors, but rather vests. The patch on our back is one piece.
Lastly, please send over information on your organization so I can share with my chapter. We have a meeting on the 8th of May if you happen to be in town.

CVMA Chapter 32-1
The mission of Texas Paralyzed Veterans of America (Texas PVA) is to serve veterans with spinal cord injury/disease, and individuals with disabilities, by providing programs that build a better future for them so they may be active in the community and live life to its fullest.
History & Overview of the Organization
Texas PVA was established in 1972 and currently serves veterans in Austin, Houston,
San Antonio, and Corpus Christi.
From supporting important health issues to connecting veterans to resources and programs, Texas PVA is a multifaceted, fully committed advocate for veterans with spinal cord injury and disease (SCI/D). We are a member organization looking out for its members as well as all people with disabilities. Membership in Texas PVA is free and open to honorably discharged veterans who have suffered a spinal cord injury or disease (such as MS, ALS). Currently, Texas PVA has a total membership of 570 veterans.
Texas PVA strives to build a community of confident and capable people regardless of their physical capabilities. The goal is to improve the quality of life of veterans with spinal cord injury or disease. By providing services, the organization helps veterans live happier, healthier, and more satisfying lives.
I’ve also attached an overview of the organization which gives more information about our programs. Please let me know if this is what you had in mind or if I need to come up with something else.
Also, please let me know if we need to meet this week. I can get to Houston to meet any time tomorrow Please just let me know.
Thank you so much!
