DAV is dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity.
- We provide free, professional assistance to veterans of all generations in obtaining VA and other government benefits earned through service.
- We fight for the rights of ill and injured veterans on Capitol Hill and the Capitol in Madison.
- We founded a PTSD program now being used by the VA.
- We provide free transportation for all veterans who need help getting to and from VA medical appointments.
With more than 1.2 million members nationwide and more than 16,000 members in Wisconsin, we have been serving our nation’s ill and injured veterans for more than 90 years. DAV is a nonprofit organization, founded in 1920 and congressionally chartered in 1932.
