Robert Scruggs of Mills River, NC and Post 77 was selected to receive the 2015 George H Seal Memorial Trophy awarded for extraordinary Volunteerism. “This years Seal award recipients are dedicated Volunteers and represents the finest DAV has to offer serving veterans” said National Commander, Ron Hope. He continued by reinforcing that volunteerism is one of the most important components to serve injured and ill veterans and their families.
 
DAV has more volunteers than any other veterans’ service organization. From our hospital volunteers to our transportation network drivers, to our local veterans assistance programs, we reach out to deliver assistance to those who need us.

Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Van

Being disabled and not having vital transportation to the doctor or other appointments can be tragic.   The DAV Van and the system that supports it can provide that critical need.
 
A Local DAV chapter raises funds as determined by the national headquarters to purchase a van. Once the required funds are raised, the funds are sent to National Headquarters, where they match the funds raised by the chapter. The combined funds are used to purchase the van from Ford.
 
The van is turned over as a donation to the National Veterans Association Office. The VA Central Office then assigns the van to the VAMC nearest to chapter that raised the funds.
 
If a local chapter has a Certified Driver, then the van will be assigned to that Chapter. The VAMC provides the license tag. insurance, and maintenance fees and the local Chapter provides the approved driver.
 
All veterans who use the DAV van must be approved 72 hours in advance. Only VAMC drivers may drive the van. Any use of the van other than transporting veterans to the VA approved appointments must be pre-approved by the Voluntary Service and VAMC Hospital Director.
 
Anyone interested in riding in the DAV Van must not have other means of transportation, must be pre-approved at least 4 days in advance by the DAV Transportation Coordinator at the VAMC. Call   299-2514 to discuss your situation. If the requirements are met, VAMC will contact the driver  who will coordinate the trip.
