We are United States Marines that ride motorcycles! We enjoy hanging out with other vets and our biker friends! Sometimes Marines need to be around other Marines. Civilians and most other services don't really get it, and that's fine. They haven't become a United States Marine, so how could they get it. Marines are Marines forever - Semper Fi (if you don't know what that means, you aren't a Marine). If you are a Marine that rides and you want to join us, send an email to MRMRiddler@gmail.com or visit our FaceBook page https://www.facebook.com/MarineRidersMichiana
When local Marines get their orders to their final duty stations we want to escort them to the cemetery, or stand guard during viewing, or whatever the family wants. We sometimes do the same for other branches as well.
For funerals and escorts please contact Riddler at firstname.lastname@example.org or his cell phone 586-864-7118
2021 was another great year at MRM, we added some new members, had a couple of members move away, and we buried one of our members.
Our Brother, Bear passed away, it was a surprise but not a huge shock. He is the only person we know that had Hospice at his house taking care of him for over a year. They finally told him "seems you have recovered and we are no longer needed," that was two years ago. We will miss you brother!!
Brothers from other charters came and visited us over Labor day weekend. We had a GREAT time as usual with our brothers.
We are grateful to participate in a lot of Marine funerals. After we lost our brother Marines in Afganistan, we were extremely honored to be allowed to escort him from Grissom Air field to the funeral home (with 50,000 other bikers) then we road escort to his final resting place a few days later. Amazing how many civilians lined the road on both escort rides, it was extremely emotional for everyone involved.
We got to enjoy bike night at our clubhouse again this year - and we also went and visited a lot of other clubs and their events.
Semper Fi Marines!!!
For those that live in a cave, today is the Marine Corps 246th birthday.
People always ask "Why do Marines feel they are different than the other military branches in America?"
The best explanation I can provide is: A person joins the Army, a person joins the Navy, a person joins the Air Force, and a person joins the Coast Guard - A person Becomes a Marine!
Every Marine believes 100% that every US Marine walking the earth is our Brother/Sister, and when we die we go to Heaven to defend the streets of Gold. We also believe that God created the Marine Corps on the 6th day, which is why he could rest on the 7th day.
As you can tell, we are very proud of our heritage, those that have come before us and those that will come after us. To our brothers and sisters that are guarding the streets of Gold, we thank you for paying the ultimate sacrifice - and we will see you on the wall when it's our duty time.
Semper Fi Marines!!!
On 10 November 1970, Commandant Chapman challenged all Marines, active and inactive, young and old, deployed or recently returned from combat, “not to look back, but instead, to look to the future.” He insisted that we celebrate our anniversary, “not as an end of almost two centuries of dedicated service, but as
preparation for new service, new dedication, and new achievement.” Those sage words resonate across time and are as applicable today as they were 51 years ago.
Our Corps holds to traditions that link us to the elite warriors who wore the uniform before us, but the traditions we hand down through the generations go far beyond tangible displays, symbols, or customs. The most important traditions that link us to our past and must be carried into the future are the intangible ones—traditions of courage, trust, discipline, loyalty, respect, perseverance, adaptability, and leadership. Today, 246 years since our warfighting legacy began, we celebrate those traits that have been forged in all Marines—past and present.
The character of Marines, our unwavering commitment and relentless pursuit of excellence, remains unchanged from that of past generations, even as the character of warfare is ever-changing. These changes will require us to do what Marines do best—adapt and innovate to win any battle or respond to any crisis. Just as Marines who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan over these past 20 years adapted to the demands of protracted counterinsurgency operations—which would have been all too familiar to the Marines of 1970—we will adapt to the demands of the present and future, while learning the hard lessons from our recent past.
We can’t know for certain where future battlefields will be, or how our methods of warfighting will be redefined as threats to our Nation evolve, but we can ensure that the Marines who fight those battles will be forged of the same courage, spirit, and warfighting excellence as all Marines before them.
We who serve today represent an unbroken chain that stretches back 246 years. As we mark our anniversary, we remember those who went before us, and as we
look over the horizon to “new service, new dedication, and new achievement,” solemnly swear to uphold their example of honor, courage, and commitment.
Happy 246th Birthday, Marines!
