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.

S.H.E.R.O. 5K Event
August 11, 2018
Alpha Gamma Xi Military Sorority, Inc. is meant to serve women veterans through a program called S.H.E.R.O. (Sorors Helping to Excel and Restore Others).
The event goal is to raise awareness to support the S.H.E.R.O. Program – which is our initiative to help empower and enrich the lives of our women veterans that may be displaced or in need, through philanthropic actions. AGXi Sorority, Inc. will be partnering with a variety of organizations that focus on veterans in order to fulfill our goals of Stewardship and Service. Through our goals and initiative, we hope to not only impact the lives of our veterans, but those of our members by giving them monthly opportunities to serve the community and making a positive impact in the lives of those around them.
