The DAV's Transition Service Program is designed specifically for those enlisted soldiers, sailors, Marines, airmen, and officers making the all-important transition back into civilian life.
It allows DAV representatives to conduct or participate in pre-discharge transition assistance briefings, review service medical records, and confer with Rating Specialists, physicians, and other participants in the discharge process. The program also allows DAV to assist service members in the development of evidence, completion of required applications, and prosecution of claims for benefits administered under federal, state and local laws.
Our NSOs and TSOs represent veterans and active-duty military personnel in discharge reviews, correction of military records, and physical evaluation boards at more than 75 military separation sites in the United States. To ensure that service personnel know about their potential eligibility for veterans' benefits, we also call on patients at military hospitals.
