Volunteer to Drive


Veterans disabled in our nation’s service should never fear needing a ride to a VA Appointment.

The DAV and Auxiliary volunteers respond, driving vets to and from VA hospitals and clinics. Other grateful Americans are helping too.

In 1922, Henry T. Ford donated 50 Model-T Fords to the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) for transporting World War I veterans. What was needed then, is still needed today in Michigan–reliable transportation and volunteer drivers.

The DAV has also donated vans, where needed, to make the program work. Other grateful Americans are helping too. It’s all part of the DAV Transportation Network, administered by DAV Hospital Service Coordinators (HSCs) at the VA’s 172 medical centers.

Michigan volunteer drivers must have a valid drivers license and good driving record. They must also pass Medical Screening to be scheduled and performed at no cost to you by the VA.

To be a volunteer driver for the Saginaw VA Medical Center, Traverse City CBOC, contact the DAV Van Coordinator at 231-313-9357
