Supporting Veterans

Disabled American Veterans (DAV)

In addition to struggling to adjust to civilian life, veterans with disabilities face physical, emotional, and financial hardship. They also deal with feelings of isolation. The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) provides them with vital services to help them overcome these obstacles and organizes events where they can connect with fellow service members. From offering transportation services to providing career guidance, they represent an invaluable resource to the veteran community.

 

What they’ve accomplished so far – support 1,300 chapters and 1.3M members; helped qualified veterans collect >$20B in claimant benefits.

 

It can be difficult to arrange transportation for someone with disabilities. DAV vans take disabled veterans to their medical appointments to ensure they don’t miss any treatments.

The annual Disabled Veterans Winter Sports clinic in Snowmass, Colorado gives veterans an opportunity to learn how to ski, fish, rock climb, and more.

Some DAV members got a chance to come to New York as the personal guests of UFC. While watching UFC 244: Masvidal vs. Diaz, they also got to rub elbows with some of UFC’s finest, including Dom Reyes, Israel Adesanya, and Bruce Buffer.

The annual DAV 5K – Run to Honor Veterans in Cincinnati is but one of many events that helps raise funds for important DAV programs.
