The idea for what would become CMC in 2018 started in February of 2016. Founder “Cash” and five others established the motorcycle riding group Countrymen Patriot Brotherhood which operated for nearly a year. A group riding mostly for fun, and supporting military veterans and first responders.
By January of 2017, the organization had tripled in size, and with the support of other DFW area Clubs, the members voted to become the Country Veteran Motorcycle Club (VMC) in that same month. CVMC’s colors would be sanctioned to fly in June, 2017, and our mission focused primarily on supporting military veterans.
Throughout its second year as the demands for service and protocol grew, some members wanted to withdraw from the MC culture, and stand down to becoming a riding group once more. Others still desired not only hold to the increased standards of the VMC, but introduce the three-percenter philosophy as part of our ethos transitioning to a 3%er club, and demand more of ourselves such that members could honorably carry forward the traditional three-piece motorcycle club culture, and execute the Countrymen mission with pride.
Countrymen MC became a legal nonprofit corporation in the state of Texas in February of 2018. After difficult deliberation and large-scale changes in membership, new Bylaws were adopted, new colors created, and a full Board of Directors for the Countrymen Motorcycle Club was voted in. CMC was re-established as a motorcycle club of integrity, true to tradition, with founders “Cash” (P), “Woody” (VP), “Butcher” (SAA), “Doc” (TR), and “Bones” (SEC). Under the new founders’ leadership, CMC had a unified vision, defined purpose, and solid foundation for the Countrymen to build on forever.
