American Legion Riders, HOW THE MASSIVE MOVEMENT BEGAN with Patriot ALR Founders, Tramp & Polka Bill
ABOUT VIDEO: Bikers & American Legion officers Tramp & Polka Bill never imagined that their initial founding group of 19 members in Garden City, Michigan, would explode into a national movement, crossing all states lines and even reaching into other countries. From a private conversation at the Legion Post in Michigan over two decades ago, to today, they have seen the development of a massive organization with now, over 200,000 members. They have seen an American force of patriotism and public service rise up all across the nation, adding strength to their local American Legions Posts and contributing as well to their communities in a wide variety of ways. The story is FASCINATING and the two guest speakers are humble and very enjoyable to watch as they share their journey.
Chuck Dare (Tramp) – Vietnam War Era Veteran
& Bill Kaledas – Vietnam War Era Veteran
Both are currently serving as officers in their local American Legion Posts.
