Membership

Eligibility

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

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.

You must also have received an Honorable Discharge or a General/Medical Discharge “Under Honorable Conditions.” Whether you are brand new to the VFW and this is your first time applying for membership or if you are a Lifetime Member transferring from another post, you will be ask to present a copy of you DD-214 along with any other related documentations that may be needed to verify eligibility. If you have any questions about membership please feel free to contact our Post and we will have one of our representatives assist you.
