Memorial Day : A Day to Remember Those Who Lost Their Lives Defending Freedom And Men and Women Home From War..

Honor all Heroes
Memorial Day is a few days away. As we honor the memory of all those who lost their lives defending our nation’s freedom, many of our veterans are experiencing something far more personal: grieving fallen friends, comrades, and military family members.
This day of remembrance can open emotional wounds for men and women home from war, but DAV is there for them.
Thousands of veterans count on us to provide the comfort, care, and support they need to heal every day of the year but especially on a difficult day like Memorial Day. Will you help us be there for them?
DAV is proud to honor our nation’s sacred promise to those who served nobly and sacrificed greatly. We are there for veterans when they come home, and throughout the long, hard healing process — inside and out. And that is because of you.

A Legacy of Service, Hope for the Future

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. The organization provides more than 700,000 rides for veterans attending medical appointments and assists veterans with more than 300,000 benefit claims annually. In 2015, DAV helped attain more than $4 billion in new and retroactive benefits to care for veterans, their families and survivors.
DAV is also a leader in connecting veterans with meaningful employment, hosting job fairs and providing resources to ensure they have the opportunity to participate in the American Dream their sacrifices have made possible.
With almost 1,300 chapters and 1.3 million members across the country, DAV empowers our nation’s heroes and their families by helping to provide the resources they need and ensuring our nation keep the promises made to them.
