DAV bringing free services to small towns, rural areas
DAV knows not every veteran has the ability or means to visit larger cities and towns where the majority of the organization’s National Service Offices are located. So DAV brings its service officers to small towns and rural communities throughout the year in a fleet of well-equipped “offices on wheels.”
DAV’s Mobile Service Offices (MSOs) travel across the country to counsel, assist and educate veterans and their families on the benefits and services available to them through their service.
Aided by Department and Chapter Service Officers, the MSO program provides support to veterans developing, filing and prosecuting claims for benefits administered under federal, state and local laws. National Service Officers assist with the development of evidence and completion of required applications of claims, bringing benefits and services education to veterans and their families where they live.
“Ensuring every veteran has access to top-notch, free assistance and representation is vital to our mission,” said National Service Director Jim Marszalek. “The work of DAV’s National Service Officers extends well beyond their offices and deep within the veterans community.”
