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.
