WASHINGTON, April 19, 2011 – In what started out as a small pilot program, members of Disabled American Veterans, working with the Defense and Veterans Affairs departments, began visiting wounded warriors at Fort Bragg, N.C., to talk about benefits and services available to them after they leave active duty.
Disabled American Veterans National Commander Wallace E. “Wally” Tyson, addressing participants in the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic in Snowmass Village, Colo., in March 2011, said DAV is reaching out to wounded warriors and the newest generation of disabled veterans. VA photo
