Our organization is pleased that you have the interest to surf into our web site, we are very proud of it. NK Carl "Sgt. Maggot" Magnifico brought us to the internet in 1998 with our first web site. NK David "Wrongway" Lewis, a US Army combat artist, fine tuned it and turned it over to NK Steve "Slider" Mona. In July 2010 NK Ray "Silent Ray" Pizzo used his expertise and completely redesigned it to the site you now see. This is just an example of the what a fine organization the Nam Knights of America Motorcycle Club is.
Membership is made up of 50% police officers (active and retired) and also 50% Viet Nam and other military era veterans, plus a few "Patriots". The Patriot members who are non-police/non-veterans enjoy all the benefits of any member, although they cannot hold executive positions from 1st Sergeant At Arms up through the position of President. All members ride Harley-Davidson Motor Company, Indian Motor Company or custom-built motorcycles with the appearance and construction of which is identical to a Harley-Davidson, and which engine parts are interchangeable with a Harley-Davidson with an engine displacement of 750cc or above.
The organization's main interests are to stress the importance of helping our fellow police officers and family members that may be in need of assistance. We also place a great deal of importance in the well-being of our veterans and to bringing out the message to the general public about our prisoners of war and those that are missing in action. We support legislation for the benefit of veterans and veteran's facilities, the advancement of studies and treatment of Agent Orange, Post Traumatic Stress and Hepatitis C. Many of our projects are to benefit the Paramus Veterans Home, police personnel and the betterment and enjoyment of motorcycle safety.
Again, I would like to thank you for your interest in our organization. If you will please sign our Guest Book and let us know your personal feeling about the web site, the Nam Knights, and/or our missions. If you are a Veteran of any conflict, please let us know that too. If you are an active or retired police officer, please let us know which department.
As President of the Parent Chapter, I feel that this is the best organization that I have ever had the privilege to be a part of and to serve. With chapters up and down the East Coast and three in Western Canada we have had many opportunities to meet more of our veteran comrades. We have grown very close and are able to share the importance of being veterans or police officers in our own way. We thank you for your support and help in the past and present in keeping the above issues alive.
To the many police departments that have helped us in the past with our functions -- helping to make them run smoother and safer -- thank you so much. Last but not least, those of you from the biker world: The only thing that I can say is thank you so very much for all the support that you have given us in the past. You have truly been very important and financially supportive in all that we have done to support our veterans and law enforcement personnel. It certainly is true that the biker is a person with a large heart, and not a person without honor. We thank you. To all the veterans' organizations and motorcycle clubs that have helped us in the past, we thank you for your support, interest and friendship in the Nam Knights Motorcycle Club.
