The card which you hold in the Veterans of Foreign Wars is a sacred heritage, your inherent right to possession was achieved when you offered your life in the service of your country.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars is unique in that you cannot be born into it. Neither a King by edict, a Dictator by command, nor a President by proclamation can demand admission. A man with millions cannot purchase a right to a membership.
The right of membership is a sacred privilege which belongs to you alone, rich or poor, regardless of race, color, or creed. Cherish it at all times, that bit of pasteboard which you so proudly carry.
Let no influence or circumstances interrupt your continuity of service in the Veterans of Foreign Wars, whose doors swung open to you because of your faithful service to your country.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars knows no predecessor, it can have no successor, and when the last Comrade entitled to wear the insignia shall have been called to his Eternal Resting Place by the Great Commander, the Veterans of Foreign Wars shall pass out forever, but its traditions and its achievements and the Spirit of Service to which it was dedicated, will live on throughout the ages as a lasting tribute and memorial to you, a member of an organization that has fought to preserve the principles of Freedom and Democracy.
