You may join a JWV Michigan Post either by keying-in the information required online, or by printing a membership application form, filling it out, then mailing it in. Either way, unless you are currently serving in the Armed Forces, your application must be accompanied by a copy of your discharge (AKA: DD-214) and a dues payment. If your DD-214 is digitized, you can email it. Credit cards are accepted for dues payment. Active duty military are free and obviously do not require a DD-214.
Dues for all Posts within JWV Department of Michigan are standardized: $65 for 1 year, $108.50 for 2 years, $153.25 for 3 years, $500 for lifetime.
