National Service Officers
One of DAV’s primary missions is to provide free, professional assistance to veterans and their families in obtaining VA and other government benefits earned through service.
Each year DAV helps more than 300,000 veterans and their families obtain needed benefits through 100 National Service Offices throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. The Wisconsin National Service Office, located in Milwaukee, helps roughly 3,500 veterans and their families annually. DAV National Service Officers are attorneys-in-fact. Contact Information:

Transition Assistance Officers
Need guidance making the transition to civilian life?
DAV’s 38 Transition Service Officers provide benefits counseling and assistance to service members filing initial claims for VA benefits at more than 109 military installations throughout the nation.
By filing compensation claims at separation centers, where service medical records and examination facilities are readily available, DAV is able to provide better, more prompt service to these future veterans.
