Veterans are our only business.

The Delaware Veterans Coalition was founded in 2011 as a registered lobbying organization to address issues affecting all generations of Delaware’s veterans.

We meet every other month on the 4th Monday, beginning in January.

The Coalition was instrumental in establishing the Delaware Veterans Trust Fund in 2013 to assist Delaware’s honorably discharged veterans in financial crisis. Our meetings and membership are open to all honorably-discharged veterans residing in Delaware, including those with General discharges under honorable conditions, regardless of membership.

The 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 filling out the newsletter registration link on the right.

You can also submit an application for membership with the red link on the left. Please include the branch in which you served. Membership is only $20 per year. Feel free to email our Secretary Don Coffman with questions.

President

Changing Minds: Vietnam Veteran Shares His Experience Using VA Health Care

“I moved to Delaware 20 years ago and didn’t use the VA for my medical care, but used my civilian medical care instead, as I was having trouble getting my medical supplies,” he said. “The Georgetown VA clinic (Sussex County Community Based Outpatient Clinic [CBOC]) was available to me, and I met with Dr. Romina Thomas. And she turned the tide for me in my thinking of the VA and managed to help me get all my supplies with no issues.”
