Living With Traumatic Stress: You Are Not Alone
After combat, service members demobilize and put away their weapons, turn in their ammunition and body armor and fold away their camouflage. In returning home, they also need to peel off layers of personal and collective behaviors that have protected them from danger and kept them functional and safe during deployments to theaters of military operation.

Forget Me Nots
The first DAV Forget-Me-Not drive was held in 1926, to raise funds for services and assistance for veterans of the first World War. It is a symbol that commemorates those fallen in war, while promising the hope of renewal. For nearly 100 years, this small blue flower of remembrance has been the staple of Chapter-level fundraising to support local disabled veterans.
Nothing evokes such strong emotion as seeing the flag of our nation unfurl. It is a symbol for the love and pride, a poignant reminder that we live in a country that values freedom above all else, upholding democracy and working for peace throughout the world.
