The association is a non-profit 501(c)(4) - 170(c)(3) War Veterans’ organization with a National organizational structure, of an Executive Board, Committees, and appointed Officers.

Our Membership is made up of veterans of WWII, the Cold War, Vietnam War, Iraq War, Afghanistan and the Global war on Terror. Membership is open to Veterans who honorably served with or attached to the 4th Infantry Division, and those who are currently serving with or attached to the 4th Infantry Division. Family members of fallen soldiers or deceased veterans can join as Memorial Members and friends of the 4th Infantry Division may join as Associate Members.
