We participate in and plan events with the goal of helping military Veterans, Veteran causes and organizations who support Veterans. We provide motorcycle escorts and flag details for Veteran funerals, parades and other Veteran events. We plan and carry out fund raisers, liaison with community leaders and other Veteran support groups in order to assist them in helping our northern Colorado Veterans.
We are a 501-C3 organization of combat Veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces who ride motorcycles as a hobby. We have chapters and members in all 50 states and living overseas. Many members continue to serve in our Armed Forces with several in combat areas.
Front Range Chapter 3-6 is based in northern Colorado and has members throughout the area such as Fort Collins, Windsor, Loveland, Greeley and Johnstown.
DAV MISSION STATEMENT
We are dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. We accomplish this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them; fighting for the interests of America’s injured heroes on Capitol Hill; and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of veterans transitioning back to civilian life.
Compassion for Veterans
The LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry teams of veterans and dogs serve veterans, active military and their families in a variety of ways. Together we strive to bring the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Christ to those who have given so much.
The presence of the Kare 9 dog and handler serves as a bridge for compassionate ministry. Each Kare 9 dog is trained to obey specific commands, welcome affection and connect with strangers. Each Kare 9 handler is a veteran who shares the bond of duty, service and memories. Some of these memories can be difficult to bear. All of these elements combine to create a relaxed setting to encourage conversation.
