Nam Knights of America MC, Old Line Chapter Makes a Special Presentation to Sheriff High

Upper Marlboro, MD… The President of the Nam Knights of America MC, Old Line Chapter Motorcycle Club, Prince George’s County Retired Lt. Col. R.J. “Bomber” Nieves made a presentation to Prince George’s County Sheriff Melvin High yesterday in recognition of Sheriff’s Deputies and Motors Unit safety assistance at events and activities for Wounded Warriors, heroes of war and law enforcement personnel.

A non-profit 501(c) 3, the mission of Nam Knights is to “help support and honor those who have fought, died or suffered severe injury in the protection of this Great Nation and our Communities!” As an expression of its gratitude, the Old Line Chapter made a contribution of $1,500 to the Sheriff for the purchase of equipment or supplies.

In honor of Sheriff High’s service in the Marine Corps and in Vietnam, Mr. Nieves presented the Sheriff with a numbered print depicting a war scene in Vietnam entitled: U.S. Marines: Victors at Khe Sanh, Vietnam-1968. The painting is the artwork of Nam Knights member David S. Lewis, a U.S. Army Combat Artist. The painting is one of 150 prints that the artist donated to Nam Knights in support of their fundraising to build a Vietnam Memorial in Chesapeake Beach, MD. 

Sheriff High said, “It was great to be with former military colleagues as we talked about American Military and Veterans’ contributions to the world through our service.  We appreciate their contribution to help us be better in our governmental obligations and I will cherish the painting.
