County Chapter 43 of the Disabled American Veterans was chartered in
August of 1985. At the time it was chartered there were only ten
members. The Chapter became the fastest growing chapter in the United
States by growing to over two hundred members within the first year.
The chapter formed its own Honor Guard in 1988 and has participated in
over two-hundred funerals and other events such as parades, etc.
A lot of the chapters original members have since died, especially the
World War II members. The chapter remains active participating in
visiting VA hospitals and having fund drives to help their fellow veterans
and widows here in Moultrie.
The chapter holds its monthly meeting the second Tuesday of each month at
125 S. Main St., in Moultrie. Visiting veterans are always welcome.
