The Coalition for American Veterans was founded by a group of citizens who felt that our veterans weren’t getting the attention and support they deserve at the federal level. It’s no secret that veterans in the United States have endured a lot over the past two decades and beyond. In addition to going months, even years in some cases, not seeing their families, they also risk their lives and limbs only to come home and find politicians that don’t support them.
There are about 125,000 veterans that are homeless in America. There are more than 3 million disabled veterans. These are things that should be unheard of. Veterans deserve to be well-cared for after their duty.
The Coalition For American Veterans have the following goals:
● Build a grassroots base of support. This is done by unifying Americans who support the cause. This will, in turn, create leverage in the political process to encourage politicians to do a better job supporting veterans.
● Protect all veterans, future, and present from losing any of their rights.
● Bring to light those politicians that are not supportive and force them out.
● Support veterans that wish to run for office.
This country is great due to the selflessness and dedication of our veterans, and we must be thankful and support them.
