Strength & Honor
Strength & Honor Motorcycle Club (SHMC) was founded on 12/04/05 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.
The Maryland Chapter of SHMC was founded in 10/2013. It was composed of former members of Guardians MC and SHMC Nomads in the vicinity of Prince George's County. In 4/2018 Point Lookout, a second Maryland Chapter, was launched in the vicinity of St Mary's County.
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.
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.
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…
SHMC is a registered IRS 501(c)(3) public charity. Our primary mission is to provide assistance to the families of fallen public safety personnel and veterans.
