In early 2006 the Desert Knights of America Motorcycle Club was born to focus on the issues facing today’s generation of veterans. Providing a new identity for a new generation, the Desert Knights focused on brotherhood and charities supporting our nation’s veterans.
Over time, the national leadership of the Desert Knights MC recognized that all veterans, even those who don’t ride cruisers, need brotherhood. So, the Desert Knights formed two more organizations for veterans: the Desert Riders Motorcycle Club for sport-bike riders in 2011, and; the Desert Warriors of the Red & Tan Nation for veterans interested in a non-motorcycle fraternal brotherhood in 2018. The Red & Tan Nation was created as a central framework to bring all three of these organizations together under one structure.
In April of 2018, the Red & Tan Nation met the Rogue Syndicate Car Club, a veteran-based organization focusing on driving and wrenching cars. The two organizations identified their shared values, and a year later, the Rogue Syndicate Car Club joined the Red & Tan Nation as an equal co-member club.
The Rogue Syndicate Car Club is a group of motor enthusiasts heavily involved in the automotive community, but we’re much more than just car enthusiasts. We’re brother veterans recognizing we lost something when we separated from the service. We lost the brotherhood, the camaraderie, the esprit de corps, and the irreverent humor that only a veteran understands. Through the Rogue Syndicate, we work to support each other and work through veteran charities and causes to ensure the veteran community realizes the support they deserve. This is what separates us from other car clubs.
Like the other member organizations of the Red & Tan Nation, the jawless skull over crossed bayonets is our support logo. The number representing the Rogue Syndicate CC is 19; this number represents the 19th number of the alphabet, the letter “S”, which is the first letter of Syndicate. United under the Red & Tan Nation as a Syndicate to promote veteran welfare and healing to its members, we are the Rogue Syndicate!
