Welcome to the DAV Department of Connecticut Website
The mission of the DAV in Connecticut is to help our fellow veterans achieve and maintain a high standard of living by providing various services to them. We have a wide variety of programs to help them. We provide claim service through our National Service Office located at the VA Medical Center in Newington. We provide transportation to veterans going to their medical appointment at the VA Medical Centers in Newington and West Haven. During the year we transport approximately 12,000 veterans and our volunteer drivers travel approximately 336,000 miles. We sponsor bingos at the Rocky Hill Veterans Home including our Christmas in February where we distribute gifts to the veterans living at the RHVH. We also provide transportation for Take a Vet fishing program. We also provide assistance to our fellow veterans in need through our Assist - A - Vet program. Once a month we go done to Bethesda Military Hospital to visit and give gifts to our country's wounded heroes through our Operation Gift Card program. We have been going to Bethesda since March 2005 and have given in excess of $1,000,000.00. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
