 The Latin American  Motorcycle Association Pocono Chapter has a Veterans Committee. This committee was created to help out disabled veterans in need in our local communities.  Helping veterans , in a way to foster individuality , independence, inclusion and productivity in their lives.  This could be easily done by constructing,  for example, a wheelchair ramp, installing specialized equipment, and simple home improvements. 
Donations from each and everyone of you will contribute to  a  special project that will better the life of a disabled veteran.  We had  successful projects in 2013 -2014,   2015 and 2016.  

The LAMA Pocono Veterans Committee 2015 Project

Post 927  in Gilbert. LAMA members put in a new  wood barrier fence and new lighting for the

Army tank that presents itself in the front of the  Legion. Channel 13 came by for an interview.

This project was completed on Friday 5/22/2015
