I'm a "life member" of DAV and it is a total disaster. I was originally told by the DAV "Service Officer" in Spokane that I had to pay for a life membership in order for him to assist me in my disability claim with the VA. I paid over $200. to get this life membership, returned to the DAV Service Officer, who then informed me that he could not assist me because I had an attorney. I did NOT have an attorney and told him this, however :"his system" said that I did. I requested a refund from the DAV on this scam and was denied my refund. This was in 2007. I contacted the DAV again in November 2012 to see information on possible grants to change my heating system over from gas to electric due to my Agent Orange. I sent an email for assistance with no response. I placed a call to their headquarters, reached their auto voice mail and requested another refund of my membership. I was then contacted by email from Robert Lougee, the Service Officer in Seattle who told me to call him for help with "my claim". I called his number today, was told that he was the supervisor by 2 female associates and was not available to me. I explained that I was looking for information and I was then informed that I was NOT in the DAV system. I gave them my "Life Time Membership Number" and they again said I was not in their system. What a scam. DON'T listen to this organization who will take your money and DO NOTHING to support you. What a joke.

With all the veterans that own and operate a HD, I believe they (HD) should offer a substancial discount to those vetrerans that that have been disabled due to military service.

I think disabled American veterans should avoid attending a child's daycare. The curriculum would be a little too slow to hold their interest. They may, however, find the food to their liking.

People can make money contributions to organizations helping hospitalized veterans, such as the DAV (Disabled American Veterans), volunteering their own time assisting in Veteran's Hospitals, such as transporting veterans to and from hospitals, working in the hospital library, etc.

The answer is complicated as it depends on many things, when & where the veteran served, service connected disabilities, current income (for needs based benefits), etc. The best resource to answer this is the VA or by contacting a veterans service organization such as The American Legion, Disabled American Veterans (DAV), or Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) , among others.

The "American Legion" was created by WWI veterans in about 1919. The "Veterans of Foreign Wars" (VFW) was created by Spanish-American Veterans of 1898, and is our oldest Veterans group. The "American Veterans" (AMVETS) was created by WWII veterans. Originally, these veteran groups were open to only their own veterans, but as time went by they opened to all "qualified" veterans.

American Veterans Aid has an VA accredited Claims Agent on staff who handles the entire application process for the claimant and is the claimant's Advocate before the VA Claims Board. He has a direct line to the VA to oversee the speedy approval of the claimant's request for financial aid.

If they are on active duty, or Reservists on active duty, then yes, they are Federal employees. Retired Veterans are considered Federal retirees, as are Disabled Veterans receiving VA benefits.
