On November 1, 2014, the Texas Disabled Veterans Association set up a military display for promoting patriotism and highlighting the ongoing programs that TDVA is providing to our veterans and community. The military exhibit was held at the Veterans Benefits Fair with a Grand Opening Ceremony, The ribbon-cutting and opening of the Patriots’ Casa building with guest speakers and special activities was held simultaneously with a Veterans Benefits Fair which is held from 9 AM – 2 PM.

TDVA Donates Computers and Setup

On the 15 October 2014 the Texas Disabled Veteran Association (TDVA) completed work on setting up the Computer Lab for our state of the art Polytrama Recreation Rehabilitation Center at Audie L. Murphy VA hospital. The Polytrama Center provides integrated services to Veterans with Polytrama and Traumatic Brain Injuries. These five Computers that we hooked up are now Internet ready. Also TDVA provided a Computer that is hands free with Dragon Dictate for those Veterans with limited mobility and all of these systems are linked to a scanner printer that was also provided. Just our way of giving back to those that have given so much. I also have to mention those donors that are always by our side giving generously.


NorthSide Lions Charitable Foundation

Members of the NorthSide Lions Charitable Foundation made another much-needed generous donation to the Texas Disabled Veterans Association (TDVA).

This donation will go to fund our ongoing programs: the TDVA Wi-Fi Program which allows veterans internet access at the VA Polytrauma Transitional Rehabilitation Program (P.T.R.P) and the Audie L Murphy VA Medical Center Spinal cord Injury Unit, the TDVA Comfort Program which provides oral hygiene products to inpatients and homeless veterans, the TDVA Cart Program which provides snacks to veterans (outpatients) while waiting at clinics for their appointments, the TDVA Computer Program which provides refurbished donated laptops and desktops to veterans continuing their education and for communicating with their families and friends.

The Texas Disabled Veterans Association, continues to strive to assist veterans and our community in obtaining informative resources to acquire benefits from the VA and other community and state agencies.
