DALLAS – The Disable American Veterans (DAV) announced the cancellation of their national convention amid COVID-19 concerns. The 2020 DAV and Auxiliary National Convention was slated for Aug. 1 through Aug. 4 in Dallas.
The organization’s press release said the decision was made out of an abundance of caution for the health, safety and well-being of DAV members, families and guests.
This cancellation marks only the second time in the organization’s 100-year history in which this annual event was not held. In 1942, as the United States ramped up involvement in World War II, the event was canceled.
