No. If you are caught, then they can suspend your checks, charge you with trying to defraud the Government, etc... DAV vans are free, so why would you get travel pay?

No, you are not entitled to receive travel pay if you use the DAV van. Additionally, you are not supposed to receive travel pay if you car pool w/another person/vet. Only the person who's vehicle is being used is entitled to travel pay. The VA wants you to turn in offending vets for defrauding the travel pay section.

That sounds like a rumor to me. When I rode one in South Dakota, I never had a problem, nor was I asked what my SC'ed condition was. Maybe there are DAV chapters who refuse to transport MH clients, but I haven't heard of one. Your best shot is to give your local chapter a call, and find out from them.

I agree w/Bonzai, sounds like a rumor. I, personally wouldn't ride w/them unless I had no other choice. First off, you're stuck at the VA until they're ready to leave.

ONe thing that I don't like about the DAV transport is that although you can not claim travel if you car pool with another veterans, the DAV is entitled to recieve travel pay for every veteran they give a ride to.

i.e. van has 8 veterans return, then DAV recieves 8 sets of travel pay.

Sound pretty lucritive to me, an annoying that once again there is one rule for the veterans and one rule for everyone else.

There is no travel pay when riding the DAV shuttle van. The van driver is a volunteer and thus does not receive pay either. The vans are typically donated by the VFW.

At most facilities you would receive a "meal ticket" similar to the one provided to volunteers. It would be redeemed with whatever local restaurant has the contract.

I have never heard a DAV shuttle refuse to transport due to a MH issue. A wheelchair condition may prevent a ride if the vehicle is not equipped with a lift.

"The vans are typically donated by the VFW"

Why would VFW donate vans to DAV? Think this must be a misprint or something. Cause our DAV Chapter spent long time raising money for a van & all we had to do was ask the VFW. I'm confused here..HELP me understand..

Ever been to a VFW or AL post. Quite staggering isnt it.

I mean you walk in with a certain swagger and walk out with a definate stagger.

The DAV has a very strong association with Ford so they get the vans at huge discounts with monies donated.
