Our Service Officers are highly trained professionals and skilled experts in developing and prosecuting veterans’ claims. Service is the cornerstone of DAV’s longstanding mission to empower veters to lead high quality lives with respect and dignity. For decades, sick and injured veterans have counted on DAV National Service Officers (NSOs) to receive earned benefits. NSOs also provide emergency relief, counseling and claims assistance. All of these outstanding services are provided to veterans free of charge. Our National Service Officers are caring advocates who express America’s gratitude to veterans in their time of need.
