The DAV worked my VA claim and when it was over I offered a donation. Since I was not eligible for membership ( not a combat vet ).
The NSO to my suprise said I was eligible, since I had a service connected rating. It did not have to be a combat related wound, as stated on the the DAV website
I told the NSO and state commander that they need to change the website. Everyone assumes the combat related wound is the criteria.
Turns out that the DAV's website is not correct, or they have relaxed membership requirements. Either way. They are hurting for members under the age of 60. And they are actually an organization that is all about helping veterans, that is all they do. Top notch and honorable veterans organization.
