DAV Updates please read

New DAV office hours: Tuesday thru Thursday 0900-1300! Closed on Mondays & Fridays for community outreach.

Be on the lookout for new VA Medical Cards. We will give you the details as we get them since there is a lot of conflicting guidance. Basically we as Veterans should be able to go to a primary caregiver of our choice if we live more than 30 to 40 miles away from a VA. Lots of confusion. We don't want you to end up having to pay a medical bill so stand by for the rules. We are planning on having a town hall meeting once we know how it all works.

CSO Training is mandatory for all CSOs and optional for any DAV member that wants to become a CSO. CSO training will be held monthly prior to the Chapter meeting.

Does anyone have any connections with a soda vending company??? We are looking for a donation or a cheap soda machine. I have contacted Coke & Pepsi but haven't heard anything back.

Upcoming events:

December 13, We will be at Dover Oklahoma for their Christmas parade at 10:30 AM! We are meeting at the Depot at 9 AM if you would like to ride down to Dover with us, If not the Commander ask's if everyone that is part of the parade to meet at 10 am in Dover!

VA Opening Burn Pit Registry (Different from the Persian Gulf registry

VA Opening Burn Pit Registry
VA Press Release
The VA is committed to caring for the needs of Veterans who have lung and other health conditions possibly related to their deployment to the Southwest Asia Theater of Operations. The Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit Registry will enable VA to better assess the health of veterans exposed to burn pits and other airborne hazards.
The registry launch was postponed to allow adequate time to develop and test the software and hardware as well as to ensure data security and accessibility. Now that it is available, veterans may participate and need not be enrolled in VA’s health care system to do so, because a registry is an epidemiological research tool and the receipt of a registry examination(s) and tests does not constitute the receipt of care.
VA encourages all veterans who served in Iraq, Afghanistan, Djibouti, and the Gulf War to participate in the registry. Veterans should sign-up now for a Department of Defense Self-Service Logon (DS-Logon) in preparation for the launch of the registry. DS-Logon can be found at thiswebsite.
This registry will enhance our (VA) understanding of any identified long-term adverse health effects of exposure to burn pits and other airborne hazards during deployment—ultimately leading to better health care.
