Veterans Caucus

. Established in early May of this year, we've had great interest and participation in this emerging caucus. Our mission is to engage Veterans in a second service: public and political service, by asking them to lend their time, experience and ideas to building a strong and representative Democratic Party. These women and men have given mightily to this country and sacrificed much - as have their families. It is our turn to invite them into government and politics, to take their great and proven leadership and make it a fundamental part of our Party.

Rep. Camille Vella-Wilkinson (US Navy, Ret.) and Senator James Seveney (US Navy, Ret.) are co-chairs of this Caucus and have already set the stage for activities from exploring legislation to improve the lives of Veterans and their families on taxes and housing, to helping younger Veterans learn how to deploy their skills in civilian jobs, to grooming candidates for local and state office, and so on. 

This weekend, Rep. Vella-Wilkinson and the Rhode Island Military Organization is hosting a Boot Camp Breakfast in honor of 2018 Armed Forces Day. It's free and open to Military, Veterans and their families, and will be held Sat. May 19, from 0830 - 1100, and will be held at the Wm. Shields, Jr. American Legion Post 43, 662 West Shore Rd., Warwick. Join us!

Our next meeting is June 2, at 0900, at the R.I. Democratic Party Offices, 200 Metro Center Blvd., Warwick. Join our Veterans Caucus today!
