Mobile Service Offices
DAV’s Mobile Service Office (MSO) program brings benefits counseling and services to veterans and their families where they live. Aided by Department and Chapter Service Officers, NSOs travel to communities across the country to help veterans develop and file claims for benefits administered under federal, state and local laws. MSOs travel the country helping veterans. Find out when one will be in your area.
The work of DAV’s National Service Officers extends well beyond their offices and deep within the veterans community. Part of their outreach activities involves DAV’s Veterans Information Seminars. This program is designed to educate veterans and their families on veterans’ benefits and services. To find out when an Information Seminar will be held in your town, click the link below.

The restaurants offer hundreds of thousands of veterans free meals. Meanwhile, DAV Departments and Chapters collect donations to help them serve veterans in their communities.
The DAV Day at the Ballpark outreach program provides Departments, Chapters and members the opportunity to be a part of America’s game. DAV members are often honored for their service by throwing out the first pitch and participating in on-field ceremonies. Thousands of DAV members and their invited guests enjoy these events each year.

Set in stunning Snowmass, Colorado, the clinic celebrates its 27th year, bringing nearly 400 veterans with traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, orthopedic amputations, visual impairments, certain neurological conditions and other injuries to the mountain.
The DAV Airshow Outreach Program was developed to increase public awareness of disabled veterans and to serve veterans in communities across the nation. Using two B-25 medium bombers, the program reminds the public of the sacrifices veterans have made and continue to make to keep our nation free.
