Member Eligibility

The difference between the VFW and other veteran organizations is our eligibility qualifications. There are three prerequisites for membership in the VFW:

  1. Must be a US Citizen;
  2. Must be currently in the US Military or have an honorable discharge;
  3. Must have service entitling the applicant to the award of a recognized campaign medal or ribbon or imminent danger/hostile fire pay and/or received the SSBN Deterrent Patrol Insignia, the Combat Infantryman Badge (CIB), the Combat Medic Badge (CMB), the Combat Action Ribbon (CAR), the Combat Action Badge (CAB), the Air Force Combat Action Medal (AFCAM), or Air Force Expeditionary Service Ribbon (with Gold Border) and/or served 30 consecutive days duty in Korea or 60 days of non-consecutive duty in Korea and/or be currently deployed in an area that qualifies for VFW membership.

Check your eligibility to see if your deployment qualifies you to membership.
