Many sick and disabled Veterans lack transportation to and from VA medical facilities, and the VA operates the Veterans Transportation Network (VTN) in cooperation with the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) to meet this need. Qualified Volunteers drive Veterans to and from VA hospitals and clinics, helping people get the care they deserve.
