The DAV Department of Washington is our state-wide association of Chapters which employs 5 Department Service Officers (DSO) in various places around the State. These DSO’s provide assistance to veterans on a daily basis. We also have dozens of volunteer Chapter Service Officers (CSO) who help veterans in the community. DSO’s and CSO’s send veteran claims to our DAV National Service Officers (NSO) located in the Seattle Federal Building and these NSO’s file the claims directly with the VA. We are not government funded and we do not charge disabled veterans for our services. We do not operate clubs, bars or bingo halls in any of our buildings in Washington. We do provide service offices to help veterans in most of our chapter offices. All of our operating revenues come from our membership, our fund-raising drives in the community, tax-deductible gifts, grants and donations. We are always raising funds to support our mission of service and building resources to improve the outreach and delivery of service to veterans in need of help.
