I have never seen a DAV advertisement. Ever. I think the lady is confused with another charity. Our DAV privides rides to various clinics/hospitals, and without it, a lot of people would be in a world of hurt. Also our service officers are outstanding. There are a lot of rip off organizations out there that sound similar to Disabled American Veterans(DAV). I wonder if you didn't interact with them.

My husband is a disabled veteran with 32 yrs of service. He joined DAV to help with his outstanding VA disability claim. He called DAV 3 times over a period of a few months. Each time he was told he would get a call back from someone to help him. NOT ONE SINGLE RETURN PHONE CALL from DAV.org. I wish my husband hadn't wasted his hard earned money to join this rip-off place. I truly am shocked at the lack of professionalism from them. He would explain with each subsequent phone call to them that he had already called and was told he would get a call back soon . . . . was always assured he would get a call back . . .never happened.

My husband's claim has now been completed by the VA (no thanks to DAV) and he is 90% disabled. He has turned to another agency for help to get the max 100%. He is using RepForVets and he got a call back the same day, with legitimate help and a packet full of info is already on the way to help my husband. Shame on you, DAV.org. You ripped-off my husband with your membership fee and he got NOTHING in return from you. How dare you advertise your organization on television as helping veterans. I guess that's where my husbands membership fee went . . .to pay for your expensive advertising!

I attended a Vets Journey Home sponsored by the Starfish Foundation last August. I am a Vietnam vet serving as an WAF medic. I did not see overseas action but was stationed at a hospital that treated the "walking dead"... men who had shut down due to being in Nam and what they did,saw and experienced there. IT was a cathartic time for me dealing with 40 plus year old issues that I had buried. The staff and volunteers there were great and helped me so much to exorcise my demons. If you can help continue this wonderful efforts for the 'Nam vets, it would be fantastic.

The Great!

participating in a Vets Journey Home Aug 09. Also a reunion with the group 2 months later that was sponsored by Starfish Foundation. Loved the idea of a follow up! HAve also gotten emails that keep me informed of what is available, what I can do to help.
