Subscription dues are just like a magazine subscription. It gives you
365 days of membership in the VFW. With this being the first year that
they are coming into effect it will be a process that we are not use to.
The basic breakdown of what is going to happen is:
If you are an annual member and you pay your dues before Jan your expiration will be Jan 2015. If you pay after that date whatever day your dues are processed at National will be the new expiration date. Example would be that you send in your dues to National on 1 Feb 2015 and National processed them on the 15 Feb. Your new expiration date would be 15 Feb 2016.
Annual membership dues are $39 and due on the anniversary of the date you joined the VFW.
Our post covers your first year dues.
Why My Vote Matters
Why I Honor the American Flag
The original V-100 (military designation M706) was
engineered by Cadillac Gage (now Textron Systems) specifically for the United
States Military Police Corps during the Vietnam War as an armed convoy escort
vehicle. Over 3,200 of these vehicles were built and Textron Systems continues
to manufacture an updated, modernized version of the V-150.
This V-150 model (Chassis #30396) was manufactured
in 1975 for the Atomic Energy Commission. It was subsequently used by both the
Santa Barbara and Lompoc police departments before being donated to VFW Post
10978 in non-running condition. Post members returned the vehicle to operating
condition, and are continuing to renovate and update the vehicle which is being
used for fund raising and Veteran memorial events.
