The National Veterans Memorial and Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that relies on friends and supporters to continue its mission, to expand programming, and to reach more people with its important message. At NVMM, we aim to educate generations to come about selfless service and sacrifice, and we can’t do that without the generous support of those who believe in our mission, our Membership community.  

New Members will receive a limited-edition Honor Guard Member commemorative coin, a personalized Membership card with your unique Member number and information, a Membership welcome letter that functions as a receipt for your donation and more. New Member Welcome Packets are mailed out within 4 weeks of your join date.

New Members who join at the Perseverance level ($65) or higher are eligible for:

  • A branch-specific coin for Veterans, or an exclusive “Proud American” challenge coin for non-Veteran Members.
  • An Enhanced Registry listing, which may include a photograph, branch information, and brief service notes.

Each Honor Guard Member can have one name listed in the Member Registry. Members can choose to list their own name, their family name, or even the name of a serviceman or woman they would like to honor.

Honor Guard Members at the Perseverance Level ($65) and higher are eligible for an Expanded Registry listing, which may include a photograph, branch information, and brief service notes.

Listing another or your spouse’s name on the Membership record is a great way to ensure that both of you receive the benefit of free admission every time you visit the Museum. The individual listed on the Honor Guard Membership is the primary benefit holder. For Perseverance Memberships and higher, you can list up to two (2) individuals on your record. Whoever is listed on the record will be the individual who has access to the exclusive Member benefits, communications, and opportunities. If you are a Veteran and receive free admission but want to ensure that you also have access to Member benefits, we recommend purchasing a Perseverance Membership or higher, and listing both your name and the name of your partner on the account.
