Dear DAV Leader,

It is my great pleasure to invite all DAV members to join us in the spirit of service and advocacy at the 2018 DAV Commanders and Adjutants Association Mid-Winter Conference, which will take place February 25-February 28 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott located at 1700 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, Virginia, 22202.

A tentative schedule can be found here. A negotiated room rate of $195 per night can be accessed online or by calling the hotel directly at 703-920-3230. Make sure to mention group name “Disabled American Veterans.”

The highlight of the conference will commence Tuesday, February 27, at 2 p.m., when DAV National Commander Delphine Metcalf-Foster addresses a joint session of the House and Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committees in the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C.

Please join me, along with hundreds of our brothers- and sisters-in-arms, at this year’s Mid-Winter Conference, where we can tell lawmakers on Capitol Hill to once again keep the promise made to the men and women who served and sacrificed.

See you in Washington,

J Marc Burgess
