Welcome to the DAV Department of Wisconsin

SERVICE IS OUR FOCUS

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

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.

Today, DAV Department, Auxiliary, Chapter & Unit members supported our beloved Veterans residing at the Wisconsin Veterans Home in Union Grove. The Summer picnic was held while the temperatures were sweltering a good time was had by all. Whether it was working the food line, helping a resident with their plate or passing out a cold beverage. DAV & Auxiliary members ensured our Veterans enjoyed a classic Wisconsin picnic. On a personal note, Julie and I proudly had our granddaughter, Katrina, with us. She is an Auxiliary member and together with Grandma Julie served desert to the residents. Our mission is to ensure that our Veterans live life’s of dignity and respect. Today, was a wonderful opportunity to work that mission. Again, thank you to all who helped out and God Bless our Veterans. - Mike Hert, Commander, DAV Department of WI. ... See MoreSee Less
