This footage features a series of 10 commercials for Disabled American Veterans (DAV), a non-profit organization that provides several services for veterans and their families. The advertisements look at the barriers faced by disabled persons, encourage volunteering, and spotlight the DAV’s Field Service Program. Several feature veteran and triple amputee, Chad Colley, who served as national commander of Disabled American Veterans from 1984-85. Bert Rodriguez’s Dallas-based production company, Visual Presentations, produced the series. Rodriguez was also the producer of the Clio-Award-winning Old Home Bread commercials that introduced the world to C. W. McCall.
