Welcome to the State Director’s page for the American Legion Riders of South Carolina (ALRSC), a program of The American Legion Department of South Carolina. The American Legion Riders are Veterans and family of Veterans who are motorcycle enthusiasts with a desire to give back to their communities and fellow Veterans and families. We have 21 Chapters located throughout the state of South Carolina and are always encouraging other American Legion Posts to start ALR Chapters. We need your support as a member to continue our mission throughout the state.
The American Legion Riders were formed:
·To use our association to promote and support programs of The American Legion, which include the programs of the four pillars of Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism, and Children & Youth. Each of these pillars encompasses a variety of programs that benefit our nation’s veterans, its service members, their families, the youth of America and ordinary citizens.
·To participate in parades and other ceremonies that is in keeping with the aims and purposes of The American Legion Department of South Carolina,
·To promote motorcycle safety programs and to provide a social atmosphere for American Legion members who share the same interest.
The American Legion Riders is not a motorcycle club, and does not practice motorcycle club rules or regulations. The American Legion Riders is family-oriented, just as is its parent organization, The American Legion Department of South Carolina.
Eligibility requirements for membership in the ALR is:

If your local American Legion Post in SC doesn’t have an American Legion Riders chapter, you can still be a member in another Chapter close by and retain membership in your post as you work to start your own Chapter. An American Legion post only needs 10 qualified members (including spouses) to start a local chapter of the American Legion Riders.
If you are already a member of the ALRSC you can buy your Rider regalia and other merchandise at the American Legion Flag and Emblem store at: https://emblem.legion.org/Legion-Riders/departments/11/
