HONOR * INTEGRITY * LOYALTY * DEDICATION * ALWAYS * REMEMBER
We are Strength & Honor. Our strength is in our Brotherhood and the Commitment we have to one another.
We are accountable to ourselves and each other. We pledge to abide by our guiding principles of Honor, Integrity, Loyalty and Dedication.
The SHMC Gray Ghost Chapter was founded on December 4th, 2010. Initially established as the Washington DC Chapter, the club was renamed to GRAY GHOST largely in part of the proximity of the Chapter members to the Northern VA area.
Strength & Honor Motorcycle Club's Mother Chapter in Fredericksburg, Virginia (SHMCVA) was founded on December 4th, 2005 as a law enforcement motorcycle club (LEMC). In addition to law enforcement officers, SHMC members include those who honorably serve or have served in the Armed Forces of the United States, those who save lives and protect property, and all others who defend life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as embodied in the Constitution of the United States of America.
SHMC was established as a fraternal organization for like minded motorcycle riders who love this nation and are committed to the guiding principles of this Club; Honor, Integrity, Loyalty, and Dedication. We are a 501(c)(3) charity organization dedicated to raising money to support all Public Safety organizations.
SHMC is a non-territorial club, our bottom rocker merely identifies where we are from. We are not a 1% motorcycle club. We respect all who ride and expect the same in return. Due to their frequent relocation, SHMC members serving in the armed forces wear the NOMADS Rocker.
Membership in SHMC is not for everyone. It requires a serious commitment to be a part of something greater than any single individual. It isn’t about donning a leather vest with a cool patch and acting the part... It’s a lifestyle, a belief system, and it’s about living it! It’s a commitment to be part of a brotherhood and to work to help others that are less fortunate by participating in various events. It’s a commitment to be there for your brothers as they will be there for you. If you are a club jumper, patch collector, or a “take my toys and go home type”, we do not want you. We want quality individuals that are willing to make a commitment and stand by it… Still interested? You might have what it takes!
