How We Help

Providing a Lifetime of Support

DAV’s free, professional assistance helps veterans and their families get the benefits they’ve earned—staying with them through every step of the process. And because disabling injuries can affect veterans at any stage in life, DAV is there with support whenever they need it.

Positive Life-Changing Services

Every year, DAV assists more than a million veterans by helping them access the benefits they’ve earned. We help veterans to achieve personal victories, great and small, such as being able to provide for their families, overcome homelessness, finish their education, access vital funds and even gather together with their fellow veterans to share good times.

All Veterans-Every Age, Every Stage

DAV believes that no matter what age or stage of life, every veteran is important. We seek to connect veterans of all generations. We support equitable benefits for all: underserved veteran populations, those with invisible and visible wounds from service, and the most vulnerable and overlooked in need of special assistance.

Advocating for Veterans Everywhere

For more than 100 years, DAV has been a strong and influential advocate for veterans’ rights and benefits. We are committed to fighting for America’s more than 4.7 million disabled veterans, representing veterans on Capitol Hill, and getting legislation enacted that protects our nation’s heroes and their families. Our more than 1 million members give DAV a powerful voice to make sure veterans are heard.
