Helped by DAV, Veteran Pays It Forward

Number of Homeless Veterans Declines

The number of homeless veterans has decreased by 24% since 2010. “That’s very good news regarding a very tough problem” that has long concerned DAV, says DAV National Adjutant Marc Burgess. 


VA Budget Underfunds Great Need

DAV and other veterans’ groups criticize the 2015 VA budget for failing to meet the construction and maintenance needs of VA facilities. And they worry about vulnerability to future government shutdown threats.


Veteran-Owned Law Firm Supports DAV

A small law firm that’s owned by a service-disabled veteran, and which has spent years fighting for service members in the courtroom, recently donated money from an employee-sponsored fund to their local DAV Chapter.


Courts Reroute Veterans to Get Help

DAV recognizes the invisible wounds of war and knows that many veterans still don’t get needed mental illness care. Now, new veterans’ courts are re-routing veterans to treatment, not jail.


DAV and Home Depot Honor Veteran

DAV teamed up with Home Depot to create a memorial garden for a veteran and mother who lost her life to cervical cancer. See how other chapters make Home Depot’s partnership work for them here.


Forget Them Not

DAV adopted the Forget-Me-Not as a symbol in the years right after World War I, and the flower still holds its place in DAV tradition across the country today. With this flower in mind, we thank you for the support and understanding you show fellow veterans as a DAV member!
