North Dakota: Legendary. Follow the trail of legends


Date of Meeting: January 15, 2016

VA Vans are provided by a multi organizational effort. The vans are purchased by the ND Department of Veterans Affairs and funds from the Columbia Trust which is operated by the DAV. The vans are then donated to the VAHCS who provide funding for the van maintenance, fuel, license and insurance. The VAHCS then place the vans with County Veteran Service Offices in North Dakota who provide volunteer drivers and coordinate the van trips to the VAHCS in Fargo and Ft. Meade SD.

  • The DAV/VA vans transport veterans to and from VA medical facilities

  • VA will not pay travel pay to veterans using the DAV/VA vans (using DAV/VA van and submitting travel voucher could be considered Fraud)
  • DAV/VA vans do not have wheelchair accessibility
