Victory for Veterans

America’s veterans are on their most important tour – the tour of their lives. DAV is on a mission to help America’s veterans get all the benefits they were promised.

Every year, DAV helps more than a million veterans, of all generations, as they face and conquer their challenges — connecting them to the health care, employment, education and financial benefits they’ve earned.

The “Victories” PSA campaign presents America’s veterans and the personal victories they’ve achieved. It highlights the victories of real-life veterans as it follows them through a moment in their day.

These true stories are just a few of the victories that DAV helps make possible every year. America’s veterans have the strength and perseverance to overcome challenges of every kind. With the support of organizations like DAV, and the American public, there is no limit to the positive lives our veterans can lead. They are true heroes and they deserve everything they’ve been promised.
