Disabled American Veterans


Treaties are signed and the battles of nations end,
but the personal battles of those disabled in war
only begin when the guns fall silent. These men and
women must struggle to regain health, reshape lives
shattered by disability, learn new trades or professions,
and rejoin the civilian world. At each step,
they need help to help themselves.

For three quarters of a century now, that aid has
come from the Disabled American Veterans (DAV),
a nonprofit organization of more than one million
veterans disabled during time of war or armed conflict.

Formed in 1920 and chartered by Congress in 1932,
the million-member DAV is the official voice of America's
service-connected disabled veterans -- a strong, insistent
voice that represents all of America's 2.1 million disabled
veterans, their families and survivors. Its nationwide
network of services -- free of charge to all veterans
and members of their families -- is totally supported by
membership dues and contributions from the American public.
Not a government agency, the DAV's national
organization receives no government funds.
