|As a nonprofit Group, we are a Quad Cities Iowa-Illinois MVPA affiliate of the national organization. The National MVPA (Military Vehicle Preservation Association) has 10,000-plus members worldwide. We encourage all new members to join the National MVPA. You receive two magazines that are well worth the annual dues of $35.00 per year. The magazines cover the military vehicle hobby, from canvas to tires and everything in between.We meet every 3rd Saturday of the month at 9:00 a.m. (not in December). The meeting location changes each meeting. If you are interested in joining our Group, please print and mail the Membership form. We will then let you know the location of the next meeting. Our newsletter is semi-monthly. Dues are very reasonable. Some of us are veterans; most are not. Families are an important part of our Group.In case you do not know where the Quad Cities are... we're on the Mississippi River at Bettendorf and Davenport, Iowa, and Moline and Rock Island, Illinois -- halfway between Chicago and Des Moines on Interstate 80. This is the heart of John Deere and Company and The Rock Island Arsenal.
