The Old North Chapter of the Nam Knight’s of America Motorcycle Club was authorized and stood up on May 2013 around Hoke County North Carolina. We are made up of Active Duty Military, Veterans, and Brothers in the Law Enforcement Community.
Since inception we have devoted ourselves to supporting the community, Law Enforcement, and Veterans' related organizations. Every quarter we host a Law Enforcement and Emergency Workers appreciation day to show our support and appreciation for all they do for us and the Hoke County, NC community.
We make an annual trek to Rolling Thunder in Washington D.C. every May to visit the Vietnam Memorial, and National Law Enforcement Memorial, to pay our respects to those who have sacrificed for the Country we are privileged to live in today.
In the summer of 1989 a small group of Harley-riding combat vets of the Vietnam War, who were also police officers, banded together to form the Nam Knights. The Nam Knights MC was founded in New Jersey by Jack Quigley, now retired Under-sheriff of The Bergen County Sheriff’s Department. Jack served as a platoon sergeant with the 11th Motor Transport Battalion, First Marine Division.
Today, the Nam Knights of America Motorcycle Club has grown to 65 chapters in 17 states and 2 Canadian provinces, with hundreds of members made up of veteran’s of all eras as well as law enforcement personnel plus a few special and dedicated “patriots.”
As Jack has said: “The club was formed to recapture the brotherhood its founding members shared while serving in Southeast Asia, and to help other veterans of all wars who are unable to physically or financially help themselves.”
“The mission of the Nam Knights is to honor the memory of American Veterans and Police Officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty, to assist Veterans and Police Officers in their time of need, and to promote community awareness through sponsorship and participation in various community and fund-raising events.”
The Nam Knights Motorcycle Club continues to grow and thrive due to the extraordinary dedication of its members, their families and our benevolent supporters.
