DAV: Taking Action at Home

Our nation’s service men and women put everything on the line in defense of America’s freedom. Our public and political leaders need to be kept informed of the challenges they face returning to normal life. DAV’s legislative grassroots campaign makes sure they know what they need to do.

DAV’s multi-aspect legislative campaign provides this education and support in the capitol and across the country. Take some time here and learn how DAV is working with lawmakers on your behalf.

DAV is a non-partisan organization. We are dedicated to one single purpose: ensuring that men and women who served in our military lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. However, we encourage everyone to communicate with lawmakers and let them know that you, too, are committed to fulfilling our promises to the men and women who risked it all to defend our quality of life.

The Commander’s Action Network is a dedicated grassroots campaign that supplies members with solid, factual information on critical veterans’ issues. The DAV CAN program helps DAV activists to keep elected representatives on notice that veterans’ issues are important to their constituents. DAV CAN provides a package of information that includes postcards, sample letters, suggested letters to newspaper editors, phone numbers and other materials. Anyone can join the Commander’s Action Network, from DAV members to non-member veterans, the families and anyone committed to fighting for veterans’ rights.
