As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group. Our common bond is the battlefield, whether service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the Global War on Terrorism, or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.
You can join our ranks 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.
"Joining the VFW is not all about the membership cost but the price you already paid to be eligible."
To become one of the 'elite,' contact a VFW Post near you, write us, call us, or contact us so we can help you join our ranks.

Here is another look at who we are & what we do...
BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP
The VFW and patriotic businesses across the country appreciate your service. That's why we've teamed up to offer you -as a VFW member- and your family discounted pricing on valuable merchandise and services. It's just one more way to say "thank you" for all you've done to protect our freedom!
Life Insurance, Medicare Programs, Life Planning & Annuities
The VFW is among the most respected voices in Washington, D.C., and within local governments across America. We advocate for justice for our nation's veterans, service members, and military families on various issues and continue to be the voice for veterans everywhere. We regularly testify before Congress, meet with elected officials, and rally our national network of more than 80,000 patriotic supporters to ensure our lawmakers put veterans first. When those who've served their country and those who support them stand together, we can not be ignored.
We Are the Pillar of Support! Promoting civic responsibility patriotism, and supporting youth and local programs in communities are just a few of the many ways we give back to those who've afforded us our freedom.
