The Disabled American Veterans, or DAV, is an organization

Chapter 16 was formed many years ago to help our disabled veterans, We
pride our selfs in keeping our members informed of Veteran benefits and news.
Chapter 16 was located in Yonkers, New York, but due to a dramatic increase in
members, we moved our headquarters to Greenburgh, New York, we continue to serve Veterans not only from
Yonkers and Greenburgh but all parts of Westchester County.
Chapter 16 is one of the only Tri-State Chapters with a website. We created this website in hopes that
all veterans and disabled veterans will visit this site and learn not only what the DAV stands for but to
enlightened Disabled American Members of their rights and benefits.
Chapter 16 is 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.
