Our Mission

Strength & Honor Motorcycle Club - Ironclad Chapter HAMPTON ROADS, VA


13 Years Strong!


 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 the Founding chapter with more than 15 chapters across the country and growing! 

Our primary mission is to provide financial and other assistance to families of fallen public safety personnel and military veterans. As a non-profit, 501(c)3 public charity, we count on and appreciate the many generous donors and sponsors who help fund these projects. We raise funds through special events, donation drives, and other activities.

Strength & Honor Motorcycle Club (SHMC) was founded on December 4, 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. Each SHMC Chapter is a separate legal entity.

SHMC is a non-territorial club, our bottom rocker merely identifies where we are from. 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.

Who we are...


We are Strength and Honor. Our Strength is in our brotherhood and the commitment we have to one another. We are accountable to ourselves and to each other. We pledge to abide by our guiding principles of Honor, Integrity, Loyalty, Dedication and to Always Remember.

We are a motorcycle club. You can't buy our patch, we do not give it away, you must earn it
