Veterans, military service members (including active-duty, Guard and Reserve) and family members of active-duty, Guard and Reserve personnel can join the national organization. Annual dues are $35; three-year membership dues are $100. A minimum of 10 members is required to begin a state or local chapter. Chapters may adopt their own by-laws so long as they are in concert with the National VMFP Mission Statement, Statement of Purpose and By-Laws. Chartered affiliates may not endorse federal issues or candidates in conflict with the national positions of the organization. Chapters, however, may adopt or endorse local issues and local or statewide candidates based on the will of their membership.
