NEED A RIDE?

Many veterans need assistance with transportation to and from VA medical facilities for needed treatment, so the DAV operates a nationwide transportation network to meet this need. Through the Transportation Network, DAV volunteers drive veterans to and from VA medical facilities for treatment. In Oklahoma, the Transportation Network is just one example of how the DAV veterans help veterans - and how the OK DAV helps Oklahoma veterans. The DAV stepped in to meet a substantial community need when the federal government terminated its veteran VA medical transportation program. The DAV has 189 Hospital Service Coordinators around the country who coordinate the transportation needs for disabled veterans.

VAMC Transportation Coordinators:  

Eric Anderson – Oklahoma City – 405/456-1540
Misty Summers – Tulsa – 918/628-2607
Leday Mauney – Lawton – 580/585-5678

  1. Disappointed to learn that the DAV in Enid does not have transportation that can accommodate a veteran in a wheelchair. I would imagine many veterans (like my husband) would need that type of assistance. Wouldn't even need to be an electric lift, but just a ramp with room inside for the chair to be secured. I'd be interested to know if there are other requests for this service that go un-served, and I would be willing to help raise funds in order to equip a van in this manner.

    1. Dear Marcia, Let first say that we are so sorry and that we understand where you are coming from because is get to us every time we have to turn a veteran down! As it stands right now their is no VA transportation allows us to transfer a vet that is wheelchair bound. We can only transfer vet that can get out of their chairs and walk short distance and they have to have a chair that folds up. It is a licencing issue and the VA transportation department dose not allow it at this time. We would like to have the opportunity for you to come down and see if their is any other way we can help you work this situation out! We are here to help any way we can.
