Joining the Company of Military Historians

Membership in the Company is open to indiviuals and families who have demonstrated a keen interest in some phase of military history. There are no requirements concerning sex, race, color, nationality, ethnic background, prior military servie or political affiliation. The main qualification is a strong desire to share one's knowledge and expertise.

Membership is inclusive of both professionals and amateurs in the field of American military history. On the rolls are not only historians, artists, writers, curators, librarians, teachers, and researchers, but people from virtually every walk of life. Among members are serious collectors of all sorts of militaria: uniforms, accouterments, weapons, equipage, military miniatures, and ephemera, to name just a few.

Below are the different membership categories and subscription options. Ultimately you will be turned over to PayPal, our collection agent, and have the option of paying via credit card or in a foreign curency. Your personal information will be collected on the PayPal screens. Because postal rates to locations outside the United States exceed those of US rates, we have a dual rate structure to recapture the overseas postage from our overseas members.
