Here is a message from Roberto Barrera:

Dear Friend of the DAV,

As a DAV Commanders Club member, you’re in a truly elite group. You’re the one who doesn’t turn away… who hasn’t forgotten the sacrifices our disabled vets made for you.

First of all, I want to say thanks – on behalf of all 2.9 million disabled vets. Without the ongoing support of friends like you, we couldn’t continue to reach out to them. All of our projects would grind to a halt. You make it all happen.

And the Commanders Club is our “flagship.” Its members are our top givers…the Americans with the best memories…who refuse to forget what our disabled veterans did for them, and gave up for them.

History of the Commanders Club

Member Benefits Because many have asked about the meaning and origins of the DAV Commanders Club, here is a little bit of background.

Conceived in 1982, the Club was launched in 1983. The Club, originally called the DAV Vanguard, is designed to provide special recognition to the DAV’s most significant supporters.

The Club took on its current name – the Commanders Club – in 1984, in honor of our highest ranking official, our National Commander. In the late 1980s, in further recognition of our donors, the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Leadership levels were introduced to the Commanders Club because many Club members were so generous in their ongoing support, the Diamond Level was established in the early ‘90s.

Over the past two decades, the Club’s ranks have swelled beyond half a million members. And those members, like yourself, have been extremely loyal and generous throughout the years.

Commanders Club membership places one within the DAV’s core constituency. These caring individuals have always been there when the DAV needed them.

4th Annual Monte Carlo Night to Benefit Pals Is Another Huge Success at the House That “Bart” Built

The 4th Annual Monte Carlo Night took place on October 3 with a Denim & Diamonds theme. It seems this party gets better every year!!  Every one of the people in attendance – numbering over 500! -- had a blast.  Nancy, dressed in elegant cowgirl regalia, once again opened her Northridge home to raise additional funds for PALS (Police Activities League Supporters) to purchase materials needed and for the various programs for the Councilman Greig Smith LAPD Devonshire PALS Youth Center, named after the local councilman who has been so supportive in the efforts of PALS and other organizations.
