How to Join AMVETS
The cornerstone of AMVETS membership is the local post. Varying in size from 10 members to more than 2,000 in some cases, each AMVETS post conducts programs and activities related to the State and National organizations goals and objectives. We offer two categories of memberships- annual and life- each with its own dues structure. Post 70 annual dues are $32.00 and life membership dues are $250.00.
To be eligible for membership in AMVETS, you must have served in the United States Armed Forces, including the National Guard and Reserves, anytime after September 15, 1940. Additionally, unless still on active duty, 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 September 15, 1940 and May 8, 1975, you are also eligible, as are wartime members of the Merchant Marine. Proof of eligibility can be a DD-214, retired ID card or other appropriate document.
