The Nebraska American Legion Riders are members of either
The American Legion, The American Legion Auxiliary or The Sons of The
American Legion. Our purpose is to use our common interest and
association to promote the aims and purposes of The American Legion as
well as motorcycle safety awareness.
A primary fundraiser for the Legion Riders of Nebraska is the American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund where the ALR has raised thousands of dollars and contributed many volunteer hours in support of such American Legion Programs.
We support those serving in uniform today through participation in deployment or homecoming ceremonies, funerals, escorts for our fallen heroes, and support of the families left behind. We also participate in community parades, ceremonies and veteran funerals if requested.
