Our Camerado Post 10165 is always looking for and glad to welcome new members. If you are veteran, or know of a veteran, who has served overseas in a foreign war, we will be glad to pay your first year's annual dues as a welcoming gesture and to give you a chance to check out our Post and our organization at no cost to you.
All we need to bring you into the VFW is a completed membership application and a copy of your form DD-214 (Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty). You can obtain a membership application in several ways:
1) Contact our Commander, Quartermaster or Adjutant (see contact information on the "Communications" page). One of these officers will get you an application by mail or meet you in person at your home or at a place of your choosing.
2) Come to our monthly meeting (7:00 PM on the first Tuesday of every month at the Veterans Memorial Building) with a copy of your DD-214. We will provide an application and "muster you in."
3) Contact the national office of the Veterans of Foreign Wars online at www.vfw.org. You can download an application form from that website. Then mail the completed application along with a copy of your DD-214 to VFW Post 10165, P.O. Box 788, Diamond Springs, CA 95619. We will process your application from there.
We also gladly welcome "transfer ins," members of another VFW Post who have moved into our area and want to join us. Call Adjutant Dave Sauvé for info on this ~ (530) 622-2564
