The DAV has been assisting veterans for over a century. It is one of the oldest veteran’s aid organizations in the United States and was founded in 1920 by Judge Robert Marx in Cincinnati.

The organization provides services such as educating and assisting veterans in filing claims with the VA. It also maintains a volunteer program that provides transportation for veterans to medical appointments, sponsors fundraising events for other veterans organizations and advocates for state and national legislation to benefit veterans’ lives.
