Membership

 

VFW MEMBERSHIP QUALIFICATIONS:

The fundamental difference between our organization and other veterans organizations, and one in which we take great pride, is our eligibility qualification.

VFW welcomes all who meet our eligibility criteria. It’s through service to this country that all our membership has earned their elite status.

If you have received a campaign medal for overseas service; have served 30 consecutive or 60 non-consecutive days in Korea; or have ever received hostile fire or imminent danger pay, then you’re eligible to join our ranks.

The seperation document or DD 214 MUST reflect campaign medal service to establish eligibility. Service in Korea without the issuance of a campaign medal can be established with additional, support documentation. Hostile Fire or Imminent Danger Pay can be established with pay records.

Annual membership dues: $35.00

Life membership available: varies please contact VFW for more information

Authorization is shown on the veteran’s seperation document.
