DAV has a mission. Helping veterans like you get everything your sacrifices earned. Helping families like yours.


That’s what we do. That’s all we do. And we do it to ensure that you and your family receive the best this country has to offer.


Who is Eligible to Join DAV?

Any man or woman, who:

· Served in the armed forces during a period of war or under conditions simulating war, and

· Was wounded, disabled to any degree, or left with long-term illness as a result of military service, and

· Was discharged or retired from military service under honorable conditions.


Well over half of all veterans eligible for DAV membership have already joined our ranks. Asked why they joined in a recent survey, they overwhelmingly cited DAV service.


More than 200,000 vets and members of their families seek out DAV’s professional service every year. They need counseling on the full range of benefits for veterans and their families.


They need help with disability compensation, VA pension, death benefits, VA medical care, Social Security disability benefits, veterans job programs, and so much more.


They get that help – expert help – from other disabled vets who have undergone the stiffest training program in veterans affairs. An all-new, high-tech training program is making sure DAV National Service Officers (NSOs) will always remain the best.


And vets like the fact that the DAV gets no government funding. They know that DAV is on their side.


Finally, at the highest level of appeal within the Department of Veterans Affairs, the DAV represents more clients than all other veterans groups combined. Join the DAV
