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.
If you or someone you know has had a traumatic brain injury and needs assistance purchasing/paying for an item or service not covered by insurance, the person may be eligible for funding assistance through the Brain Injury Trust Fund.

FREE Workshop for Veterans, Current Service Members, and Families
Sponsored by Help The Veterans (helptheveterans.org)
The Power Breath Meditation Workshop is a mind-body program that emphasizes techniques to build resiliency. It offers practical breath based tools that decrease stress, anxiety, anger, and sleep problems resulting in improved overall wellbeing.
Here’s what some participants say about the Workshop…
“Beautifully taught and life-changing. Offers life-long tools enabling you to face any crisis, hardships or challenge. Lucky me for having the privilege of participating.”
“I am a Vietnam Combat Vet. I highly recommend the Power Breath Workshop to all vets. The course is effective for dealing with combat civilian life stressors. You learn through breathing practices to slow down, get in touch with yourself and gain a measure of inner peace.”
“I am calmer, less anxious, more centered and able to interact less reactively with intimates. I am feeling more spiritually connected to others and to a higher Power. Remarkable that attention to the breath can be the royal road to a greater sense of well-being and interpersonal harmony.”
