Founded in May 2011, the coalition is a statewide, nonprofit, pro-bono lobbying organization that works with elected officials and community leaders on issues that affect all generations of Delaware’s military veterans.

The mission of the coalition is to ensure that the concerns of those who serve are heard. Its slogan is “Veterans are our only business.” Coalition dues are $20 per year.
