American Legion Riders Chapter 423
About the Riders
The American Legion Riders (ALR) are motorcycle enthusiasts who are members of the American Legion Family, which is made up of members of the American Legion, the American Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of the American Legion. Riders can be found participating in parades, ceremonies, patriotic events, motorcycle rides and activities, and supporting the communities where they live, work and play.
Organizational Structure, Leadership & Meetings
The Riders are divided into departments at the state level and chapters at the local level. Each chapter is supported by a local American Legion Post and it is required to uphold the principles of The American Legion and to abide by the regulations and decisions of its local post, department, and the national headquarters. However, chapters have great flexibility in determining the extent of their services and programs.
Each organizational level of ALR (department and chapter) is led by officers elected annually by its members or representatives of its members. Currently, Jim Horstman serves as the Director of Chapter 423.
Chapter 423 typically meets the second Sunday of the month at 11:00 AM. Meetings are held at Post 423.
