Each veteran faces unique challenges—immediately and in the years after service. Here are some of the challenges many veterans encounter and ways DAV can help.
Navigating the Complex World of Benefits
Benefits and policies for veterans continue to change. The system can be hard to navigate. It takes knowledge and persistence to understand benefits, file the right claims and see the process through.
The Changing Needs of Veterans
The ever-changing face of the military and of service itself means that our veterans require individualized support over their lifetime, depending on when, where and how they served.
Making the Move to Civilian
Transitioning to civilian life after the military can be a tough time for veterans. “Finding the mission again”—creating a purposeful life through employment, service or education—is critical,and transition struggles can carry serious risks.
There are nearly 20 million veterans in the U.S. Each one has been affected by their service. DAV helps veterans of every generation address their challenges and achieve personal victories, great and small, to better thrive in civilian life.
With your support, DAV and our million members are keeping the promise to America’s veterans. Here’s our impact in 2022 at a glance.
