What Do We Do?


Since the mid-1980s, Chapter 48 has been devoted to a single purpose - fulfilling the promises to the men and women who served and their families. Our certified and accredited Service Officers can help you obtain the benefits you earned.


DAV members share the common bonds of war-time service and service-connected disablement. We provide needed support to our comrades, and understand the problems you may be facing - we have all walked a similar path to rehabilitation.

Fun Events

Our chapter participates in events designed to be both fun and provides services to other veterans, including quarterly visits to hospitalized veterans at the Richmond VAMC; participation in various Memorial, Independence, & Veterans Day events; conducting information seminars; and claims assistance events in our communities. We conduct or participate in a variety of other events that empower veterans to live a quality life.
