Support Troops and Care for Veterans

Delaware Democrats believe we have moral responsibility to keep faith with all our veterans and wounded warriors. We are committed to helping our veterans achieve their educational goals, and support reducing barriers to veteran entrepreneurship. We also support measures to combat waste, corruption, and dysfunction in the federal Department of Veterans Affairs. We must take care of those who put their lives on the line to defend us.

Expand Military Family Services: Delaware Democrats honor the sacrifice of military families who serve alongside our service members. We will support military families with jobs, education, childcare, and health care. We will promote family-friendly policies and champion efforts to care for our military family members, especially for the spouses and children who must rebuild their lives after the loss of a loved one or life-altering injury or disability. We must expand services and programs for veterans, especially women, whose needs are often overlooked during and after their service. 

Care for Veterans: Delaware Democrats will fight for every veteran to have timely access to high-quality health care and processing of claims and appeals. We are committed to taking veteran mental health seriously, including PTSD, addiction, and suicide, and providing resources to injured veterans, including those suffering from mental health injuries.

Assistance Programs for Veterans Experiencing Homelessness: Delaware Democrats believe we should provide resources to fight the chronic issues of veterans homelessness and protect them from the dire circumstances that tend to follow and pervade such conditions.
