We also have a small cadre of AMVETS Riders Supporters. The supporters are members of AMVETS and are non-motorcycle riders that want to support and take part in raising money for VETS through the AMVETS Riders Chapter. They assist where they can and may drive support vehicles in support of a distance ride. Their uniform is the same as the riders with the exception their vest indicates they are a supporter.
