DAV Auxilliary

An essential part of the DAV is its auxiliaries. While all of our veterans are special, no one knows more than those that are associated with the veteran, wife, son, daughter, nephew, niece, brother, sister and many more. The DAV auxiliary offers them voice in helping procure benefits that improve their wellbeing. The caregiver provision was a direct response to family members wanting to assist their veteran hero in personal care at home. Being an auxiliary member honors our veterans and shows them we care.

Thanks to dedicated members across the nation, the DAVA programs are far-reaching and the personal rewards fulfilling. Our members are diverse in their interests which is what has made the DAVA so successful.

The Massachusetts Municipal Association(MMA) is actively advocating for the elimination of veterans’ preference and other anti-discrimination protections included in civil service laws. Their membership consists of elected and appointed officials from the same Massachusetts cities and towns that on Memorial Day and Veterans Day hold ceremonies and parades where they are happy to bolster their public images by praising and being photographed with the same veterans whom they are aggressively trying to disenfranchise of their rights.

DAV Dept of MA strongly opposes the MMAs effort to use the current and difficult conversations our society is having around race and equality to revoke rights, benefits and anti-discrimination protections for veterans and Gold Star families in public sector employment.

These efforts are meant to achieve their long-sought legislative goals of freeing themselves from their obligations to our veterans and revoking the rights our brothers and sisters have most certainly earned.

Instead of working together with veterans to facilitate fair and meaningful change, the MMA has chosen to engage in a dishonest campaign that is exploiting serious social issues as cover for an unrelated agenda they have been advocating for years. Please contact your legislator and ask them to support veterans and Gold Star families by protecting civil service.
