JOIN THE VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS

As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we, at VFW Post 4031, want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group. Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Vietnam, Kosovo, the  Global War on Terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.

If you have received a campaign medal for overseas service; have served 30 consecutive or 60 non-consecutive days in Korea; or have ever received hostile fire or imminent danger pay, then you're eligible to join our ranks.
 
To become one of the 'elite' contact  VFW 4031 near you in Durango, write us, call us, or email us but please contact us... Contact VFW Post 4031 now.

Additionally you do not have to remember to send in your annual dues each year. Here is a table which shows the Life Membership payments.
