Why is Your DAV Auxiliary Membership
The Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary (DAVA) was founded in 1922 by women
who saw a need for assistance to the families, widows and orphans of disabled
veterans, as well as the disabled veterans themselves. Today, in more than 2,000
Units nationwide, the DAV Auxiliary continues, more dedicated than ever before,
to serve disabled veterans, with particular emphasis on the families of those
The MANY reasons to join the Auxiliary:
There are lots of reasons to join the DAV Auxiliary: terrific volunteer
programs, an opportunity to serve disabled veterans and their families directly,
a chance to help others in your community, and much, much more. But the most
important reason for joining the DAV Auxiliary is quite simple. There's a
pressing need to protect the benefits the disabled veteran in your life has
earned for the people you care most about - your family.
The DAV NEEDS to be strong:
Your membership strengthens the DAV Auxiliary in its battle to defend your
family from the deterioration of the benefits which help buy the groceries and
pay the rent or mortgage. Just belonging to the Auxiliary accomplishes so much -
long before you attend your first meeting. It also helps protect families of
other disabled veterans, many of whom are less fortunate than yours.
Take a stand against those who want to forget about what war has done to the
lives of so many veterans, including the veteran you love. Send a strong and
clear message to all national leaders who would ignore the sacrifices that your
loved one has made for our country. Keep our nation mindful of the needs of your
family and the families of other disabled veterans. That's why your membership
in the DAV is so important, and that's why you should join the DAV Auxiliary
Types of memberships:
There are two types of membership in the DAV Auxiliary - annual membership
and life membership, both are explained on the following application form. Your
annual membership will lend strong support in our battle to defend disabled
veterans and families like your own. And with a life membership, you'll seal
your commitment to the Auxiliary, your disabled veteran and your family for
