Did the DAV rep lead you to beleive you had to be a member of the DAV? I sure hope not. I know allot of them push membership for the wrong reason. They get recruiting $$ from the National HQ.

I stress that ALL veterans can use the DAV to file a claim and DO NOT have to be a member.

Yes, I am a life member. But I joined years ago.
