Several veterans gathered Friday for the 92nd DAV Convention.

AUBURN, AL (WSFA) - Veterans from across the state were in Auburn Friday as a part of the 92nd annual Disabled American Veterans, or DAV, convention.

"We have roughly 20,000 disabled American veterans in our organization, and some of us are here to meet and talk about new improvements for what we can do for our veterans here in the state of Alabama," said DAV Alabama Dept. Commander Deborah Walker.

A wide range of topics are being discussed including a bill that the DAV hopes to soon become law.

"We discuss veterans legislation, helping them get their benefits, and there is a bill passed recently through the House and the Senate that would give all veterans who need caregivers support," said DAV National Judge Advocate Michael Dobmeier.

The next convention is in January.
