The Disabled American Veterans online store sells clothing and auxiliary items, such as patches, pins and rings, on behalf of the DAV charitable organization. There is also a series of Disabled American Veterans thrift stores, which sell items like clothing, home goods, books and electronics.
The DAV online store offers labeled clothing items, such as dress shirts, sweaters and polo shirts, to both members and their families and supporters. It also sells supplies directly to individual chapters and departments, including flags, emblems, patches, wheelchair totes and bronze plaques suitable for the outside of a building. The money spent in either type of store benefits DAV and partially funds its efforts.
DAV is a veterans advocacy group that provides numerous resources to American veterans and their families. The organization offers concealing and in-home visits to ensure that specific needs of disabled veterans are met, including access to health care services, the ability to obtain food and proper housing. Local chapters coordinate services for members and offer a place for veterans to meet and reintegrate into civilian life. Additionally, the DAV has lobbying and legislative branches that work with the government to ensure that veterans are afforded proper representation and legislative attention.
