Red & Tan Nation

The Red and Tan Nation consists of three separate and distinct groups, each with their own function and national leadership. All three of these organizations are a tightly-knit brotherhood that provides the camaraderie and esprit de corps that is commonly missing outside of the military.

About the Red and Tan Nation

In 2017, after observing the struggles so many of our veterans have, we were determined to reach veterans who don’t ride motorcycles. We saw how our support network rescued many of our brothers from suicide attempts, substance abuse, anxiety issues, PTSD-related issues, unemployment, and a number of other social issues that plague the veteran community. Eventually, it became common-place for Desert Knights to hear veterans say, “I wish I had a bike so I could join your brotherhood…” We finally realized we needed to reach these veterans. The national leadership of the Desert Knights MC decided to create a brotherhood that was modeled after the successful principles of the Desert Knights, while combining it with the outreach of a traditional veteran service organization. In early 2018, the first chapter of the Desert Warriors joined the Red & Tan Nation. Why another Veteran's club? (click for more)

Too often, we hear veterans express how they miss the camaraderie and support they had when they were in the military. They don’t identify with the civilian world, and often find themselves resenting the take-it-for-granted, poor-me mentality they encounter outside of the military service. Veterans have an entirely different sense of humor, a take-charge attitude, and an objective approach to life that places results above feelings; this makes them strange to their civilian counterparts. Most of all, in their loneliest of times, veterans wrestle with alligators that civilians will never see, much less, understand. Veterans need veterans.
