Disabled American Veterans, Chapter 5, or DAV-5, is the primary veteran service organization that assists all veterans filing VA claims for service-connected disability compensation and pension benefits in Kitsap, Clallam, Mason, and Jefferson Counties.
During 2019, more than 3,000 veterans or family members visited the DAV-5 Bremerton office for help.
We’re open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday from 9 am to 2 pm. Closed on national holidays. Monthly chapter and auxiliary meetings are at noon on the 1st Saturday of the month, with a potluck lunch after the meetings.
We’ve Moved!! We are no longer located on Burwell Street in Bremerton, WA. DAV Chapter 5 and the Auxiliary are now located at 4980 Auto Center Way in West Bremerton in the former Navy Federal Credit Union. We have plenty of off-street parking. The West Bremerton Transit Center is a short walk away, and we’re on Kitsap Transit Route #20.
