History of the few Original Fightin Few concept The first thing you’ll notice when you see a patched member of the Fightin Few is the center piece, Ole Joe.  As anyone  with a military background will tell you, soldiers are often referred to as “Joes”, and this idea was central to the concept that  ultimately formed the Fightin Few.  When you look a little closer, you will see that Ole Joe is represented as a skeleton  clutching a rifle .  This was intentional.  The skeletal look of Joe is to represent the fact that even in the face of death,  soldiers have to pick themselves up and soldier on, and also to comemmorate the sacrifices of those heroes who came  before us, and gave us the freedom we so enjoy with their blood, sweat, tears, and in many cases, their lives.  Joe wears a  gray confederate era uniform that not only speaks to our confederate roots, but also gives a nod to the honorable history of  the military.  The color was chosen to represent the tired look of worn military uniforms; how over time they fade and  appear to turn gray, the way old boots will look after hard use.  Those boots, though worn, always feel better than new  boots, and carry many soldiers on to their next mission.  So it is with the Fightin Few.  “People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.”  ~ George Orwell The Fightin Few began as an idea between two like-minded individuals who would soon come to call each other brothers.  The two met at the Hindenburg memorial, and found that they had a lot in common.  They both knew what it was like to have fought for your country, and to have struggled with coming home to a completely different world.  It was that struggle that all soldiers have endured which gave rise to the Fightin Few.  When enough members dedicated themselves to the ideals of the Few, the Fightin Few Motorcycle Club was born. “Lead me, follow me, or get the Hell out of my way.” ~General George S. Patton The newly formed Fightin Few MC strove to help those few who had done so much for the many.  The FFMC exists to provide those brothers-in-arms a place to come home to, and to ease their transition into their new lives.  As any soldier knows, deploying and returning can some of the hardest moments of your life, and the brotherhood you build overseas is what helps you overcome the challenges you face.  The Fightin Few MC seeks to continue that brotherhood, and to improve the lives of soldiers and families all over our great nation. “Never in the face of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few.” ~Winston Churchill The Fightin Few Motorcycle Club strives to maintain the values that bring our brothers-in-arms home every day.  We maintain that the best therapy for a tortured soul is the open road and your brothers behind you.  Like the Ole Joe  that is our centerpiece, we will fight until the bitter end to preserve our way of life and our brotherhood.  We pursue our own happiness by forging a brotherhood, linked together by shared struggle, and the love of the open road. “We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; for he today who sheds his blood with me shall be my brother.” ~William Shakespeare, “Henry V” “It is the soldier, not the reporter, Who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, Who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the organizer, Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier, Who salutes the flag, Who serves beneath the flag, And whose coffin is draped by the flag, Who allows the protestor to burn the flag.” ~Charles M. Province Many Fight - Few Win
