A Veteran run 501(c)(3), 100% NONPROFIT organization. We currently operate on a 100% Volunteer basis, driving all of our funding into three objectives:
Ride of the Brotherhood has the following three objectives:
Maintain the awareness of the needs of our veterans.
Ride of the Brotherhood has created “Never Forget”, a tribute motorcycle to honor our Veterans who paid the ultimate sacrifice. This motorcycle will tour the country and be displayed at Veteran events, motorcycle shows and rallies.
Assist organizations that are dedicated to helping homeless veterans.
Establishing Camp NORA, a homeless veteran village, which will assist our Veterans in need. Veterans took an oath to serve their country, defend their country and for some, die for their country, but not to be forgotten by their country. There are over 55,000 homeless veterans on any given night in the United States. As of October 16, 2017, Ride of the Brotherhood has entered into a "Lease with Option to Purchase" agreement with Agape Ministries to obtain a 17.61 acre of land with a ready to use house that has 13 bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms located in Covington. Please see the "Camp NORA" tab for more details.
Work with organizations in locating, identifying, and returning home our MIA’s
Our foundation, The RETURN, is dedicated to the ultimate homeless Veteran, the MIA. On August 30, 2017, Ride of the Brotherhood (RotB) officially received a signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA). DPAA is the U.S. Government agency responsible for the entire process of investigation and recovery of unaccounted-for U.S. personnel from past military conflicts. Under this agreement, DPAA and RotB will collaborate, through a public private partnership (P3), on activities that will contribute to DPAA's mission to account for missing U.S. personnel from designated past military conflicts, in this case specifically Vietnam. RotB will accomplish this by conducting research and field activities in the U.S. and Vietnam under the restrictions and guidelines of DPAA and this MOU. There are still over 1,200 American soldiers missing in Vietnam so a lot of work still needs to be done. Our next trip to Vietnam hopes to be around February 2018
