The Delaware Veterans Coalition’s goal is to keep our website current as a source of information on benefits, opportunities, and events for our readers. Check back often. Please note you can sign up for a free update on veteran-related legislation by clicking on the newsletter registration link on the right. You can also submit an application for membership on the left. Membership is open to all honorably-discharged veterans residing in Delaware at only $20 per year. We meet every other month on the 4th Monday of the month, beginning in January of each year.
We also support the Kent County Veterans Memorial Park which tributes Gold Star Mother and Families, those lost in Vietnam, Korea, and the Middle East. The park also contains a POW/MIA Chair of Honor, a War Dog memorial and a UH-1 “Huey” Dustoff helicopter perched on an 18-foot stand. The park is financed through the sale of memorial bricks. If you wish to honor a family member or loved one who served, buy a brick to support the memorials, visit the Support the Memorials page.
