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.

Women Veterans Brochure
Women make up 10 percent of the total veteran population and are the fastest growing demographic among America’s veterans. More than 2 million have served, and the Department of Defense reports women account for nearly 20 percent of the country’s active duty force.
Volunteer for Veterans
DAV proudly serves our nation’s ill and injured veterans through a variety of unique volunteer programs. DAV is proud of the devotion and support we receive from our volunteers. It’s those dedicated individuals who make our volunteer programs so successful.
The journey from injury to recovery is not complete until a veteran is able to find meaning in his or her life. For those who are able, that means getting back to work to care for their families.
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.
