"Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil
and steady dedication of a lifetime." I agree wholeheartedly that it is
the dedication of a lifetime that defines true patriotism. You all have given
not only your time, dedication and effort, but—most importantly—your
very being to the protection and advancement of this great country. You
work tirelessly for the rights of the veterans who serve our country,
while conducting the nation’s finest civic training to instill young
future leaders with the knowledge, understanding and wisdom to govern
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are subscription dues and how do they work?
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.
