We are the Utah Chapter of the American Heroes Motorcycle Association®, a non-profit organization, based out of the Ogden area, but have members as far away as West Valley City.
As Veterans, we donned our uniform to protect, serve and keep our country safe, usually on foreign soil while our first responders kept our families safe by patrolling the streets, providing fire and medical services in our community. "We" who continue to dedicate our life to helping others, serving others, promoting brother and sisterhood, healing and family share the same troubles and desires.
We all experience similar issues and feel that we are stronger under one patch. There is a lot of focus on 'awareness', we want to 'do', there is plenty of awareness of Veteran and first responder suicide - it is time to act. Our goal is to bring people together, provide resources and training to help each other. There is a wealth of resources for managing PTSD and other service related issues however, we feel that the first line of defense that stands between us and PTSD lies with us. It's time that "We" stand in unity under one patch.
Join us and make a difference.
Remember the Spartan Pledge:
"I will not take my life, by my own hand, until I talk to my battle buddy first.
My mission is to find a new mission and to help the Veteran community."
