Menís Auxiliary Being Established

06-24-08

The Orrville VFW Post is seeking charter applicants for membership in a soon-to-be formed Menís Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Members of the community are invited to seek additional information if there is any interest in becoming a charter member of the Menís Auxiliary.

If you are a husband, widower, father, grandfather, son, grandson, brother or half brother of a person who was or is eligible for membership in the VFW, and you attained that status prior to age 16, you are eligible. Members in the Menís Auxiliary must be at least 16 years of age.

Basic VFW membership eligibility is through service to our country that has earned our membership their elite status. Anyone who has received a campaign medal for overseas service; has served 30 consecutive or 60 non-consecutive days in Korea; or has ever received hostile fire or imminent danger pay, is eligible for membership in the VFW.

If you are interested and meet the relationship qualifications of anyone who is or was eligible to join the VFW, contact us by clicking on the Contact Us link in the top navigation bar to learn how you can become a Charter Member and have your name printed on the Charter of the Menís Auxiliary of Post 3446 Veterans of Foreign Wars when it is issued later this year.

We need to have twenty five applicants before we can apply for a charter. To date, we have twenty eight men who have expressed a desire to be charter members. We are currently accepting applications and processing them to determine eligibility. This process will end when we have twenty five verified applicants to submit with the charter application. We are expecting to be able to submit the charter in late July, but will hold it open for an additional two months to allow for verifying additional applications.

Time is important, so contact the Post and begin the application process. If your relative was or is a member of our Post, the verification process takes only a few minutes. For those relatives who were never VFW members, the verification requires either a DD-214 or a Standard Form 180 (SF 180). Obtaining these forms could take several weeks.
