Anyone who has served in HMM/VMM-265 is eligible for membership in the HMM/VMM-265 Veterans Association, Inc. Membership is free. You can navigate away from this page without submission by selecting another menu item. Joining the HMM/VMM-265 Veterans Association and getting access to the members-only section is a two-step process.
First, fill out and submit the FNG Application for Membership below. This is our own form and is used by our membership officer to check you out. He will send you an email when you are accepted, with copy to the Webmaster. This places you on the list to receive information from us, mostly about coming reunions.
Next, when you get that email go to ‘https://hmm-265.org/Members/Members Feature/Register’ and register for access to the members-only section. This form comes to us from the website plugin (technobabble) that we use for overall membership management. It checks membership status before allowing access to the members-only section. The membership plugin sends the form to the Webmaster for approval. The Webmaster will approve it based on the membership officer’s acceptance email to you. Webmaster approval changes your membership status from “Pending” to “Subscriber” and gives you access to the members-only section.
Why all of the BS to sign up? To keep out the hackers, spammers, and other assorted ne’re-do-wells who constantly besiege our site. We review our security reports daily and see a lot of attempts. In the words of the late, great Ronald Reagan, “Trust but verify.”
Items on the form below that are marked with an asterisk are required. Some of the info we ask for is there to help us weed out the ne’er-do-wells, but also to help our Marines remember each other. None of it will be publicly posted except what you choose to put in your member profile if you register for access to our website. Your name and years-in-265, nothing else, will be placed on a list in the members-only section to help old friends find each other via the webmaster.
