President Emeritus and Founder of the NABSTMC
Ken “Dream Maker” Thomas
Hello, my name is Ken Thomas aka “Dream Maker”
I am the founder of the Chicago Buffalo Troopers Motorcycle Club, formally the Chicago Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club. The National Association of Buffalo Soldiers and Troopers Motorcycle Club was formed in 1999 after the growth of our club with Buffalo Soldier chapters in other states. With the Chicago Chapter being recognized as the mother chapter of the organization the club has grown to over 115 chapters to date.
I am a retired Chicago Police Officer and I currently ride a 2013 Victory Cross Country Tour. I have been riding motorcycles over 30 years and I choose to form the motorcycle club after experiencing the activities of the local clubs in the Chicago area. I wanted to create a new club that honored the history and legacy of those African Americans that fought and died for this country and a club that would be respected within our community and throughout this nation. Our mission as a club is simple, we ride, educate, and give back to community.
As they say, “The rest is history”
ONE CLUB, ONE PATCH, ONE MINDSET – AND ONE LOVE
Glenn “GrayFox” Williams.
I am the President and Chief Operating Officer of Millennium Technologies located in Baltimore, Maryland. I ride a Victory Cross Country Tour and enjoy traveling with my lovely wife KayGee.
I am a history buff and one evening while surfing Buffalo Soldier history, I discovered the Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club and became a “Probie” one month later (January 2004). I look forward to meeting more of you as we move forward with our mission of education, camaraderie and community service.
Nathan “Motown” Mack
My name is Nathan “Motown” Mack and I am proud to be apart of the greatest motorcycle club in the world.
I am a retired Sergeant Major of 26 years and I continue to serve my country as a government contractor. I have an MBA and I am currently pursuing my Doctorates. I love sharing the history and accomplishments of the Buffalo Soldiers with others and what makes it even better is riding and socializing with other Soldiers from around the country.
I would like to thank everyone for allowing me to serve as your National Vice President. It is our mission to do good things in our community and be positive role models for our youth. I believe in helping tomorrow’s leaders today and today is now!
Betty “Boo” Thornton
I am Betty “Boo” the President of the Houston Texas BSMC.
I would describe myself as a positive self-motived person that believes in this organization, and I strive every day to be the best “Buffalo Soldier” I can possibly be.
The great part of the NABSTMC is that our members are from all walks of life and identify with numerous professional occupations. We take pride in living the “Dream”, giving back to our communities and teaching our young one and some old about the history and the legacy of the 9th and 10th Calvary Buffalo Soldiers.”
We all need to remember… “ONE CLUB…ONE PATCH…ONE MINDSET!!!” And as I always say….
“Your continuous support is always greatly appreciated!”
Much Love, Betty “Boo” Thornton, National Secretary, NABSTMC
