AMVETS Member Benefits
Why Join AMVETS?
AMVETS is a veterans service organization devoted not only fellowship, but also service to the community and other veterans. Joining with fellow AMVETS in planning and participating in post activities, members provide significant contributions to all areas of our veterans’ community. Members have joined our organization not only for the pleasures they may have derived during the years, but also for the contributions they can provide to the well being of AMVETS by working cooperatively with fellow members.
To be eligible for membership in AMVETS, you must have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, including the National Guard and Reserves, anytime 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.
Hawaii Post 1, USS Arizona Memorial annual dues is $30.00 and Life member dues is $250 as of 1/1/2012. These dues fund, in part, the programs, services and representation AMVETS provides.
You will be counted in our numbers and help our efforts to protect veterans’ rights in Washington, D.C. AMVETS National Headquarters will share our initiatives and purpose through quarterly issues of the American Veteran Magazine and e-mails. As a Member at Large you cannot vote in AMVETS elections however your membership is important to our efforts. At some point in your membership you may want to create or join a post. Posts are active throughout communities in America upholding the honor of veterans service and continuing to serve veterans and their communities.
