DD-214‘s are now available on line.

Other individuals with a need for documents must still complete SP Form 180 which can be downloaded from the online website. You can find a link to this website on our Home Page.
LIFE and LEGACY MEMBERSHIPS
Consider a Life Membership or a Legacy Membership if You are Already a Life Member
You can become a VFW Life Member by making a one-time payment as shown below. You can also pay for your Life Membership through an installment plan, with an initial $35 payment and an mount billed over an 11-month period as shown in the table below.
|81 and Older||$170||$15.45|
A Legacy Membership is open to Life Members. There are three levels, Gold, ($1,200), Silver ($800), and Bronze ($400). Unlike the Life Membership where the Post no longer is the recipient of an annual dues rebate when a member passes, the Post continues to receive a return of dues from National for Legacy members who pass thus leaving a lasting positive impact on the Post‘s financial well being. The Legacy Membership is tax deductible to the maximum extent allowed by law. Like the Life Memberships, an installment plan is available. This is a great way to continue giving to the Post and to VFW long after you and I are gone and have left the Post to the next generation of veterans.
