Welcome to the DAV Department of Wisconsin


DAV empowers veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity.

We provide free, professional assistance to veterans and their families in obtaining VA and other government benefits earned through service. We offer free rides to veterans who need help getting to and from VA medical appointments. We fight for the rights of wounded, injured and ill veterans on Capitol Hill in Washington DC and at the Capitol in Madison.
