 Lifetime Membership

LIFE MEMBERSHIP in the OVMS is capped at 1000 members.  To be eligible, you must be a member of the Society in good standing for five (5) years, 21 years of age or older with no criminal record.  If you would like to become a life member, submit an application (an updated application form will be linked here shortly).  No payment will be collected at this time.  As vacancies become available, eligible applicants will be notified.

Life members receive free admission to Society-sponsored shows for all members, their spouses, and children under 18 years of age. We encourage you to share your passion with your family, to ensure that the history we celebrate survives future generations. 

Additionally, lifetime members get a membership card and distinctive  membership badge, which grants you exclusive early access to all OVMS sponsored shows (including the Show of Shows & MAX).

The Ohio Valley Military Society, Inc. reserves the right to rescind any Life Membership of a member who breaks any rules or regulations stipulated in its Constitution and Bylaws. If it is found that a member has a criminal record or acquires one while a Life Member, or is a member of, or becomes a member of any subversive group, OVMS membership will be terminated.

Life Memberships in the Ohio Valley Military Society, Inc. are non-transferable. Any Life Member whose membership is terminated as a result of violation of OVMS rules and regulations, loses any rights to a refund by the Society.
