VFW Membership

JOIN THE VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS

As yesterday’s defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today’s military service members and veterans into the ranks of our elite group. Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Persian Gulf, Kosovo, the Global War on Terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns everywhere else in the world. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.

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
.

If you are interested in joining with other veterans in supporting our fellow comrades, their families and our community please consider joining us. We are an active group, dedicated to enriching the lives of our brothers and sisters and our surrounding community. Most importantly, each new member, whether silent as an annual dues contributor or loud as an active member of a VFW Post increases our voice with the legislatures on both the state and national level.

We are actively seeking to enlist new members and restore those who have expired memberships. If you know of someone who is eligible for membership in the VFW now is the time to contact them. Dues’ are $41.00 per year. Life memberships are available based on a variable cost depending on the age of the Veteran or Active Duty personnel. Monthly installment plans are also available.

Those veterans who served during WWII or the Korea Conflict may join at no cost.
