Disabled American Veterans [DAV] — Most of the organization
Many years ago I had a friend at the DAV so I joined as a life member. However, all my filings with appropriate evidence were developed by ME, Dav only processed. This is true and accurate and is easily documented by just looking at the supporting documentation on my claims. Any visit to a Dav rep for help never had ANY positive help. Current example - I was given a 100% rating in 2015 retro to 2011. DAV sent me the decision with a VA insurance application form which I completed and returned. Since it came from DAV I returned it to DAV. My wife and I were compiling wills so I checked on VA insurance and was told I was not covered.
I have requested info research of my file which with any legitimate organization would have copies of written correspondence from those it represents. To date the DAV has responded with statements ‘we don't handle life ins. Call them ‘l
The DAV will not even look at my file as requested which should verify they had received VA ins. application.
The DAV will no longer receive ANY support from me. either financial or recommendation. In fact, remove me from your membership.
