Eligibility for membership in the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is based on honorable service in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, or Coast Guard performed by officers or enlisted personal who have served in any foreign war, insurrection, or expedition, which service is recognized by the award of a campaign or service medal of the United States, or who served in Korea, with certain exclusions, or who earned Hostile Fire or Imminent Danger Pay. Persons still serving in the active armed forces may be accepted for membership provided they meet eligibility requirements.
Proof of service to establish eligibility for membership rests with the applicant. The Post is responsible for assuring the eligibility of every member accepted to membership INCLUDING TRANSFERS.
A list of campaign medals recognized as meeting the requirements for membership is available at our Post. Bring your separation papers to the Post and we will check your eligibility. The list is long and continues to evolve. You may be qualified without knowing it. Let us check it out. It is an honor to be a member of The Veterans of Foreign Wars.
In the event you do not qualify for our regular Post membership, you most probably will qualify for our Auxiliary. Both the Men's and Ladies Auxiliaries are now combined so chances are you will qualify for membership in our Auxiliary. Please come in and discuss your relationship with any member of the Veteran of Foreign Wars. We welcome you to join our family!
