At DAV, we’re on a mission to help veterans get the benefits and services they were promised by our nation. Every year, we help more than a million veterans, of all generations, as they face and conquer their challenges — connecting them to the health care, education, and financial benefits they’ve earned.
We hope these real stories of personal victory will inspire greater support for America’s veterans and demonstrate that DAV is here to help all veterans reach their victories. Because when America’s veterans win, we all win.
