DAV: FULFILLING OUR PROMISES TO THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO SERVED

About Us

 MUSCOGEE CHAPTER 7


Muscogee Chapter No. 7 is the second oldest Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Chapter in the State of Georgia.  It was chartered on 7 January 1927. 

We are committed to fulfilling our mission of building lives for our community's disabled veterans and their families through our core values of service, quality, integrity and leadership in representation and advocacy services now and in the future. In addition, the service officers at our chapter strive for complete accuracy of all required Veterans Administration (VA) forms prior to their submission for disability compensation, appeals or medical claims. We are a non-profit organization through which our society can express its gratitude to the men and women who continue to pay the price of our nation’s freedom.

Our service is completely free to all our veterans and members of their families, in the Chattahoochee Valley Area and is totally supported by membership dues and charitable contributions from the American public. We are not government subsidized.  Professional assistance is given to all veterans and their families in obtaining benefits and services through military service, VA, and other agencies of the government. We also provide outreach concerning our programs and services to the American people generally and to disabled veterans and their families specifically. Our chapter represents the interests of the community’s disabled veterans, their families, their widowed spouses and their orphans before state and local government. A forum is also provided to allow disabled veterans to express their compassion for their fellow veterans and disability concerns that might arise.

No veteran regardless of class, gender, ethnicity, age or sexual orientation is turned away.


 

We are dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. We accomplish this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them; fighting for the interests of America's injured heroes on Capitol Hill; and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of veterans transitioning back to civilian life.

  • Providing free, professional assistance to veterans and their families in obtaining benefits and services earned through military service and provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and other agencies of government;  
  • Providing outreach concerning its program services to the American people generally, and to disabled veterans and their families specifically;  
  • Representing the interests of disabled veterans, their families, their widowed spouses and their orphans before Congress, the White House and the Judicial Branch, as well as state and local government;  
  • Extending DAV’s mission of hope into the communities where these veterans and their families live through a network of state-level Departments and local Chapters; and  
  • Providing a structure through which disabled veterans can express their compassion for their fellow veterans through a variety of volunteer programs.
