Secretary
BettyBoo

Hello!! My name is Betty “Boo” Thornton

I am the National Secretary of the NABSTMC and the President of the local chapter, Houston, TX Buffalo Soldiers MC. I have been an active member of this organization since August, 1999.

I ride a 2011 (candy apple) Harley-Street Glide. Prior to my transfer to Houston, I was the President of the Chicago Buffalo Troopers (Mother Chapter) leading seventy-two members while serving as the Great Lakes Frontier Vice Chairperson.

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

Web Technology

My name is Greg "Dreamer" Brown - President & Chief Executive Officer of Project Cover Your Neighbor Foundation whose mission is to make our invisble homeless visible. I am always re-inventing myself, others may call it A.D.D -- I enjoy living in the moment discovering, experimenting and learning. To sum it up I have lots of hobbies and interests... and its because the child in me is still excited, curious and just wants to play in the sandbox of life.

No matter how much you know, how much experience you have or how many resources you have at your disposal, I believe if you don't have a way to give back out of those resources, experience or knowledge, you will experience a sense of emptiness, a void.. I was drawn to the Buffalo Soldiers organization because of it's mission and how the organization can impact the lives of others. I look forward to serving you in this capacity.

Chaplain

 

My name is Michael D. “The Blessed Outlaw” Shelton, Jr.  I am a proud member of the Indianapolis Chapter of the Buffalo Soldiers and have been since August 2005.

I proudly served my country in the United States Marine Corps from 1979 to 1983.  In 1984 I became an Indiana State Trooper until I retired in 2009, after which I was instructed by God to enroll in Bible College.  I received my AS Degree in Christian Ministries at Indiana Wesleyan University in 2011.  I am a member of the New Horizons Church here in Indianapolis.  In December of 2011 I was made an offer I could not refuse, to go back to work in law enforcement as a sergeant with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office as a Detective and a Police Motor Officer.

I am currently the Great Lakes Frontier Chaplain.  It is going to be an honor to represent the NABSTMC as your National Chaplain and my sole purpose is to be available for every Trooper and Soldier in this organization at anytime for every way I can possibly be.  God has given me this opportunity to use the gifts He has bestowed upon me for this great organization and to maintain a positive bridge between the National Officers and each and every person in this club. “ONE CLUB, ONE PATCH, ONE MINDSET”!!!  I am here for YOU!!!

Greetings, I am Reginald "RoadRunner" Marable and I am honored to serve as your National Safety Officer. As a "certified" Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) Rider Coach and Harley Davidson Riding Academy Rider Coach I do not propose to have all the answers but my close relationship with the Alabama Traffic Safety Center, Alabama Motorcycle Safety Program, and MSF it is my intention to develop a National Rider Education Program that will help NABSTMC members become safer Riders reducing injuries and fatalities while increasing rider and co-rider knowledge, riding skills, and awareness through continuing motorcycling education at Chapter, Frontier, and National events. I look forward to working with the many NABSTMC Road Captains nationwide as we develop and roll out a dynamic program. I look forward to seeing you all as participants in classroom settings as well as range exercises to improve your motorcycle riding skills and knowledge.

Asst. Secretary

My name is Tia “Broadway” Winston. I am the Asst. National Secretary of the NABSTMC. I’ve been the Central Frontier secretary for six years and am also the Dallas, TX chapter secretary. I’m an active duty Army Major preparing to retire in 2017. My current iron horse of pleasure is a Hot Rod Red 2017 Street glide special. I’m a mother, a wife, a biker and a friend to hundreds of Soldiers who I cherish. I’ve only been riding since 2009 but because of the Soldier nation, I’m addicted to the highway.
I love and “RESPECT” our founder Kenneth “Dream Maker” Thomas for his vision to identify this M/C with the forgotten African American Soldiers known as the Buffalo Soldiers. My favorite thing about being a Buffalo Soldier is the financial support we provide to educate our youth. I’m committed to the tireless work necessary to keep his “Dream” alive as we ride, educate and support our communities.
Two quotes I live by “To lead is to serve” and “In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity

Asst. Webmaster

Greetings all, my name is Alice Brown, better known to the Soldier-Trooper nation as Sugar Brown. I am RETIRED Army, serving 30 years, 15 years Navy and 15 years Army.

I was first introduced to this great organization when I was given an opportunity to become a charter associate member of the Birmingham, Alabama chapter of the NABSTMC in 2006. My road to becoming a full patched member started in 2007 when I started noticing the ladies who rode, like AJ "Suga-Soldier" Coffee and Felicia "Pink" Munson. I signed up for the MSF Motorcycle course thru the Army and that was the beginning of Sugar Brown. I became a full patched member June 2008.

My first iron horse was a 2002 Honda 750 Shadow. Two years later, I moved up to a 2007 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic LT. My desire to keep up with everyone and not be the one with the smallest tank, pushed me to move up to a Honda 1800 Goldwing.

Sadly the Army decided that I needed to be in Alexandria, Virginia. So although I kept my membership with the Birmingham chapter, the Northern and Central Virginia chapters welcomed me with open arms.

Two years later I found myself retired from the Army and working as an Army civilian at Fort Knox Kentucky. It was at that time that I realized that I would not be moving back to Birmingham and with a heavy heart transferred my membership to the Kentucky Mother chapter, where I was elected to the Secretary position.

I was approached by Larry "Bluzman" Giles to join him in starting a chapter at Fort Knox back in 2012. After locating other full patched members and riders located at Fort Knox, we started the Fort Knox chapter, The "GOLD" Standard of Motorcycle Clubs. I currently hold the position of Vice President.

You maybe wondering how I could be qualified to assist the National Webmaster. Well, I was a Data Processing Tech in the Navy, an Information Systems Analyst in the Army and I'm currently a SQL Server Database Administrator for the Army Human Resources Command.

A website is not just a website; it is a tool to help us communicate our goals to visitors and each other in order to build and grow. A visitor should never be confused to exactly who we are and what it is that we do. My mission is to assist Dreamer with the vision he has for our national website.

I am a mother of 3 awesome daughters....I have 2 awesome son-in-laws....and I have 1 awesome granddaughter and 4 awesome grandsons.
