To join a local Post:
Please visit the Post and ask for a membership form. To establish eligibility you will be asked to show proof of eligibility (DD-214, copy of hostile fire/imminent danger pay stub, etc.). Try one Post to see if it is a rewarding experience. You can always transfer to another Post by requesting a transfer form at the Post that you want to transfer into. All applications are voted on during a regular Post meeting before being sent to National HQ for final processing. Your presence at the meeting is not required, but we encourage you to attend to meet your fellow Post members.
If you want to join online:
This link will take you to our National VFW website and you will become a member-at-large for a slightly higher amount.
Remember, because VFW membership is exclusive to veterans who served in foreign danger zones, you’ve already paid the high price of eligibility. The low annual dues you pay or the affordable cost of a lifetime membership protect your future as a combat veteran and supports today’s troops. Even if you never set foot in your local Post, your membership will improve your quality of life.
