Building better lives for America's Disabled Veterans
Pictured below is the founder of the Disabled American Veterans of the World War (DAVWW) Judge Robert S. Marx, Capt., USA. We were later renamed Disabled American Veterans
Judge Marx had a dream: "We had a common experience which bound us together, and we ought to continue through an organization of our own…an organization of us, by us and for us…." and here we are, more than 100 years later, still going strong.
