"NEVER SHALL ONE GENERATION OF VETERANS ABANDON ANOTHER!
Consider this "Our Second Call to Duty"! (TM) 2007 The Iowa Democratic Veterans Caucus
The willingness with which young people are likely to serve in war, no matter how justified, is directly proportional to how they perceive how veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their country. - George Washington
About The Iowa Democratic Veterans Caucus: The Iowa Democratic Veterans' Caucus was established in 2007 and is the recognized voice for veterans and their families within the Iowa Democratic Party. The Iowa Democratic Veterans Caucus acts as the voice of Democrats in the Veterans' community by setting the IDP legislative and policy agenda for issues affecting Veterans, their families and their communities.
This group is open to members of the Iowa Democratic Party who are active duty personnel, members of the National Guard and Reserves, retired military and/or honorably discharged members of the Armed Forces of the United States of Americans.
The immediate goal of the Iowa Democratic Veterans Caucus is to establish a network of county veterans' caucuses with a veterans' liaison as a function of each County's Democratic Central Committee. These county veterans' groups will work through the Districts' and state leadership to elevate issues affecting veterans and their families within the Iowa Democratic Party. (for details see the Iowa Democratic Veterans' Charter - in the 'files' section of this web site)
