Is "Disabled American Veterans" a reputable non-profit organization?

I get donation requests from a group called "Disabled American Veterans" out of Cincinnati, OH.

I have sent them a few bucks over the years, and they send me some nice return address sticky labels.

There are lots non-profits out there---some good and some not.

Does anybody know if this is a good organization or not?

They seem to have a good rating here:

Yes, DAV is the real deal. I'm a life member since they represented me in my claim for VA benefits.

Check them out at: http://www.dav.org/

DAV is providing me with a lawyer for my PEB proceedings free of charge. My lawyer has also helped me file all my VA paperwork, and will soon be helping me purchase my first houw with a great interest reate.....
