Transforming Veteran Lives

DAV (Disabled American Veterans) is dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity.

DAV is a nonprofit charity that provides a lifetime of support for veterans of all generations and their families, helping more than 1 million veterans in positive, life-changing ways each year. Since being chartered by Congress in 1932, over 12 billion benefits claims have been filed by the DAV National Service Program. DAV-represented veterans receive more than $25 billion in earned benefits each year. Since 1987, volunteer drivers have traveled over 740 million miles transporting more than 19 million veterans to medical appointments. Since 2014, there have been over 280,937 attendees at DAV job fairs and employers have extended over 168,000 job offers.

DAV services are offered at no cost to all generations of veterans, their families and survivors.
