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.  Read more and discover how you, too can stand with our heroes ad make sure their voices are heard in Washington.
