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.
AMVETS Membership Dues: annual dues is $30.00 and Life member dues is $250. 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.
PLEASE NOTE: When joining online, please note the membership verbiage in the Membership Manual. If you join anytime before Sept. 1 of the current year, your membership is good for the current year only. If you join on or after Sept. 1, your membership is good for the next year.
Disclaimer: AMVETS does not share with third parties the personal or financial information of AMVETS members or members of the public.
For more than 75 years, we in AMVETS have taken to heart the credo of service set forth by our organization’s founding fathers. In so doing, we endeavor to provide our fellow veterans with the type of support they truly deserve. This outreach effort takes many forms, from the professional advice our service officers offer on earned veterans benefits to our legislative efforts on Capitol Hill to the work done by our hospital volunteers.
Other AMVETS members involve themselves in a range of initiatives aimed at contributing to the quality of life in their local communities.
These two areas, veterans service and community service, drive the commitment we have to make a difference in the lives of others. The pages of this website provide more detailed information on each area, as well as a wealth of information for veterans, their families and other interested citizens. Please take a few minutes to review what makes AMVETS the distinctive organization it is. Our aim of building for a better America is an undertaking to which all can contribute.
I invite you to join us, today.
