A Post 6 member has all of the benefits of post 6, Department, or National level and may hold office and vote at the appropriate level.
We also offer two membership categories—annual and life—each with its own eligibility & dues structure.
To be eligible for membership in AMVETS, you must have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, including the National Guard and Reserves, anytime after Sept. 15, 1940. Additionally, unless still serving, your discharge must have been under honorable conditions. If you served as an American citizen in the armed forces of an allied nation, under honorable conditions, between Sept. 15, 1940 and May 8, 1975, you are also eligible, as are wartime members of the Merchant Marine. Proof of eligibility can take the form of a DD-214, an honorable discharge certificate or other appropriate document.
You are counted in our numbers and help our efforts to protect veterans’ rights in Washington, D.C. AMVETS National Headquarters will share our initiatives and purpose through quarterly issues of the American Veteran Magazine and e-mails. Posts 6 is active throughout Cedar Rapids and other communities in our area upholding the honor of veterans service and continuing to serve veterans and their communities.
