With a legacy of service dating back to our founding in 1920, DAV has a track record of being an influential advocate and inclusive voice for veterans of every era and conflict. Today, with 1.3 million members and nearly 1,300 local Chapters, DAV represents the voices of ill and injured veterans before Congress, the White House and the judicial branch, as well as state and local governments. DAV fights for veterans’ rights and promotes policies that ensure veterans and their families can live with respect and dignity. When DAV leaders testify before Congress, policymakers listen, and it’s because of our members—a voice that policymakers cannot ignore. Advocacy is an extremely important piece of what DAV does for veterans and our members. The louder our voice, the stronger our presence and DAV wants your voice to be heard. It would be our honor to have you stand with us to ensure veterans’ rights are protected, now and in the future.
