Membership into AMVETS is open to all active duty and honorably discharged veterans. Our members are from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard and the National Guard and Reserves. We are chartered by Congress to assist veterans in all aspects of their lives from disability claims to finding jobs. We also participate in local events as well as charitable work that benefits the organizational goals. Annual membership dues are $30. Life memberships are $250. To learn more, contact the Post.
To be eligible for membership in AMVETS, you must have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, including the National Guard and Reserves, any time after Sept. 15, 1940. Additionally, unless still serving, your discharge must have been under honorable conditions. If you served as an American citizen in the armed forces of an allied nation, under honorable conditions, between Sept. 15, 1940 and May 8, 1975, you are also eligible, as are wartime members of the Merchant Marine. Proof of eligibility can take the form of a DD-214, an honorable discharge certificate or other appropriate document.
