Free Medical Transportation for Veterans!

DAV operates a fleet of vehicles around the country to provide free transportation to VA medical facilities for injured and ill veterans. DAV stepped in to help veterans get the care they need when the federal government terminated its program that helped many of them pay for transportation to and from medical facilities. The vans are driven by volunteers, and the rides coordinated by almost 190 Hospital Service Coordinators around the country.

DAV has purchased 2,967 vehicles, worth nearly $65.1 million, that have been donated to Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers nationwide since the program began in 1987 to ensure that injured or ill veterans are able to get to their medical appointments.

Call the number 218-204-0693, or Veteran Services Officer Pat Strand at 218-387-3639 for more information!

Wellness calls offered

Worried about a friend or loved one who lives alone? 

I would be happy to make a daily wellness check call to that person. Having been concerned for those who may need a friendly "how's it going?" now and then, I decided to just try this and see how it goes.

No cost. And the person called must agree to the service.
