DAV is dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity.
We do this through Service Programs and Advocacy.
DAV provides free professional services to veterans and their families in obtaining VA and other government benefits earned through their service to our country.
Last year, we helped over 330,000 veterans and their families obtain benefits, nationwide.
In Wisconsin, we helped over 3,500 obtain benefits. For more specifics click here.

DAV reaches out to veterans with mobility problems, or who simply live a distance from our DAV National Service Office with a Mobile Service Office (MSO) van funded by a Harley-Davidson grant. For our MSO schedule click here.
DAV offers free rides to veterans who have difficulty getting to and from VA medical appointments.
