Our History

Welcome to the Battlefield Chapter of the Nam Knights MC. We appreciate you taking a moment to learn  more about our club. Our mission is to honor the memory of American Veterans and Police Officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty, to assist Veterans and Police Officers in their time of need, and to promote community awareness through sponsorship and participation in various community and fund-raising events.  

The Club was founded in New Jersey by Jack Quigley (pictured above), now a retired Undersheriff of the Bergen County Sheriff’s Department.  Jack served in Vietnam as a platoon sergeant with the 11th Motor Transport Battalion, First Marine Division. As Jack says, “The club was formed to recapture the brotherhood its founding members shared while serving in Southeast Asia, and to help other veterans of all wars who are unable to physically or financially help themselves.”


The first chapter of the Nam Knights MC was founded in the summer of 1989, by a small group of Harley-riding combat vets of the Vietnam War, who were also police officers.  To date, there are 74 chapters spread across 16 states, Washington D.C., and Canada.

The Battlefield Chapter was established in 2010, and has members living in and around Frederick County, Maryland. We are an IRS approved 501(C)(3) charitable organization which has established programs and events to support military and law enforcement causes.


Members of the Battlefield Chapter share a strong bond rooted in over 30 years of Brotherhood. We are dedicated to the overall mission of the club.  We have fun, ride our Harleys, and support those who serve. Thank you for your interest in the Nam Knights of America, MC.  Feel free to CONTACT US to learn more.
