Among the franchisors, educational institutions, and government agencies that have already reserved exhibitor booths at the Expo are DAV; Vinnell Arabia; The Home Depot; CSX Transportation, Inc.; Combined Insurance; Saia LTL Freight; Heavy Construction Academy; Colonial Life; State Farm Insurance; Airstreams Renewables; Bed, Bath & Beyond; Georgia College of Construction; First Command Financial Planning; Argosy University; Farmers Insurance; and The Art Institutes.
DAV personnel will be on hand to answer veterans' questions about benefits and to provide them with other valuable information.
DAV was founded by World War I veterans in Cincinnati in 1920 and chartered by the United States Congress in 1932. The organization empowers veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. It is dedicated to a single purpose: fulfilling our promises to the men and women who served. DAV does this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them; fighting for the interests of America's injured heroes on Capitol Hill; and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of veterans transitioning back to civilian life. DAV (www.dav.org) is a non-profit organization with 1.2 million members.
