Each day, members of the House of Representatives and the Senate receive hundreds
of letters and e-mails from large corporations and well-funded special interest
groups. It takes a concerted effort and a large number of letters, phone calls,
e-mail messages, and telegrams to show elected representatives that there is a groundswell
of concern about pending legislation. That's what DAV CAN is all about, getting
lawmakers to act in the best interest of veterans.
"DAV CAN is the acronym of the DAV Commander's Action Network and it's like lightning
in a bottle," DAV National Legislative Director Joseph A Violante said. "DAV members
and their families who join DAV CAN are able to directly contact their elected representatives
using language that will get their attention."
The Commander's Action Network is a coordinated, dedicated, vigorous grassroots
campaign. By signing up members, supplying them with solid, factual information
on critical veterans’ issues, DAV CAN becomes a coordinated, strategic, and goal
The DAV CAN program helps DAV activists keep their elected representatives on notice
that veterans’ issues are important to their constituents. DAV members, their families,
and others who join DAV CAN will receive a package of information that includes
postcards, sample letters, suggested letters to newspaper editors, phone calling
information, and other materials to make them a vital part of the network.
"By becoming a valued member of DAV CAN, you demonstrate your dedication and commitment
to improving the lives of our nation's service-connected disabled veterans and their
families," DAV Washington Headquarters Executive Director David W. Gorman said.
"By your active participation in DAV CAN, you will become an integral part of the
DAV's grassroots legislative team."
Join DAV CAN and make a critical difference on important veteran issues.
