The Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association (CVMA) is an association of Veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces who ride motorcycles as a hobby. Its current mission is to support and defend those who have defended their country and their freedoms. Its focus is to help Veteran care facilities provide a warm meal, clothing, shelter, and guidance, or simply to say "thank you" and "welcome home."

The association's members include Full Members with combat service and Supporter Members with non-combat military service. Many members continue to serve in the armed forces, with several serving in combat areas now. Although the basic motorcycle requirement is any make or model 500 cc or larger. Some are also PGR "Patriot Guard Riders",[1][2][3] or members of their local Veterans of Foreign Wars or American Legion.

CVMA sponsors and participates in many motorcycle-related charity events each year, and as a non-profit organization, donate to various Veteran care facilities and Veteran charities.[4][5][6]
