Membership in the KWVA
Korean War veterans are eligible to join the local and national KWVA if you served honorably in any of the Armed Forces
of the United States, said service being within or without Korea, but during the Korean war era (September 3, 1945
through January 31, 1955), or who, as a member of the Armed Forces of the United States as defined by U.S.C. Title 10,
served honorably in Korea from February 1, 1955 (to a date yet to be determined).
As part of your membership in the national Association, you will receive six issues of The Graybeards magazine.
It is published every month - the issues are January-February; March-April; May-June; July-August;
September-October; and November-December. The magazine is generally mailed around the first of the second
month of the issue.
Are Your Dues Current?
Check your Graybeards mailing label
If your dues remain unpaid for the calendar year 2007, you will be removed
from the “Graybeards” mailing list at the end of April. We will mail a dues reminder
to you prior to removal, but we are hopeful that you will save us these printing and
To determine when your dues are due, please look at the mailing label used to mail the
Graybeards magazine to you. Your dues date appears on the label on the right hand
side just above your last name. It’s important to remember that the mailing labels for
this magazine may have been printed as much as a month before the magazine is actually
received by you. So if you have sent in your dues within the last month, it will not be reflected
on your mailing label.
If you are a regular member (having served in Korea in the military or having served in the
military during the Korean War (not necessarily in Korea)), there is an “R” in the numbers just
above your first name and the following dues schedule applies to you:
“01/01/07” (translated this means January 1, 2007). This means your dues are due in the
amount of $25.00 for the calendar year 2007. (By the same token, some are paid a year or
two in advance. This is also reflected by this date and you will receive your yearly stickers
when that year rolls around.)
It is hoped that everyone will confirm their dues to the calendar year as soon as possible.
