The first step to supporting our veterans is identifying the pressing issues they face every day. Every year DAV convention delegates identify the most important of these issues and create a set of resolutions designed to improve the lives of veterans throughout the United States.
It is through this process that DAV has been making historic strides in protecting veterans’ rights for close to 100 years. From the creation of the forerunner to the Department of Veterans Affairs in the 1920s, to caring for the returning heroes from Afghanistan and Iraq, DAV has responded time and time again to the changing needs of veterans by ensuring that their voices are heard by our Congress.
