Veteran Claims & Benefit Assistance
If Rich NFL, NBA and MLB kneelers wore our uniforms, they would understand Respect for our Flag, Country, and Veterans. Therefore, we Choose to BOYCOTT
Our DAV Chapter is dedicated to a single purpose: Fulfilling our promises to the men and women who served. DAV does this by ensuring that veterans with "service connected disabilities" and their families can access the full range of earned benefits available to them, fighting for the interests of America's injured heroes on Capital Hill, providing Access to employment resources and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of veterans transitioning back to civilian life.
DAV Chapter 78 members make themselves available to veterans who don't know where to go and who to ask for assistance. You can find us at area Car Shows/Swap Meets, participating with local businesses tending to employee veterans and at most military related functions. Veterans can contact us on this website or via email or by calling a member at 832-581-9444. You will find us very responsive to your needs and questions.
We have a local DAV National Service Office (NSO) available to you at our monthly meetings or by phone. This person is a fulltime DAV employee working for you. We encourage all veterans with "service connected disabilities" to join Chapter 78 and allow us to help you get the help you need. Our services are available to all military branches Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard who have served our great Country. We can also assist families, children and in some cases grandchildren of veterans.
We treat all veterans with the respect and assist them in getting the medical help they need and benefits they deserve.
