Subscription dues are just like a magazine subscription. It gives you 365 days of membership in the VFW and whatever day your dues are processed at National will be the your expiration date.

Example would be that you send in your dues to National on 1 Sep 2018 and National processed them on the 15 Sep. Your new expiration date would be 15 Sep 2019.

Annual membership Dues $45 and due on the anniversary of the date you joined the VFW or the date of annual renewal.

         Teacher of the Year

Without our nation’s veterans, America wouldn't be the great nation it is today. Our youth deserve to learn about our rich history, traditions and the role of our veterans in creating and shaping America.

Each year, the Veterans of Foreign Wars selects elementary, middle, and high school teachers to participate in the Smart/Maher VFW National Citizenship Education Teacher program.

Please review the new rules and eligibility requirements and download the 2022 entry form to nominate a teacher you know. Teacher nomination entries must be received at a local participating VFW Post by the            Oct. 31 deadline.

Looking to share updated information and materials on VFW's Voice of Democracy, Patriot's Pen and Teacher Award programs? Share our National Scholarship Brochure (coming soon) with the students and educators in your community.
