The different chapters of the American Legion Riders in the Omaha, Neb., and Council Bluffs, Iowa, area try as much as possible to ride together by communicating via an ALR website, a group site on Facebook, group emails and fliers handed out at events. By spreading the word of a ride to other ALR chapters and inviting all to the ride, you will always get a better turnout. We are also able, usually, to have time to ‘shoot the bull’ waiting for a parade to start, or right after a funeral we might have lunch together in some small unfamiliar town. This is an important part of being a Rider: meeting others with similar military backgrounds, meeting people with the same goals and values you have, and the best part as a ALR member is you get to ride with friends.
