The Veterans and Military Families (VMF) Caucus, founded in May 2019, is made up of Democrats Abroad (DA) members who are willing to advocate on issues important to veterans and their families.

Democrats Abroad (DA) honors the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces; their service deserves our deepest gratitude and respect. This caucus will work within DA to achieve this. 

The VMF Caucus members share and adhere to the principles and demands expressed in the platforms of both the Democratic Party and DA regarding veterans, active military and their families.

Our mission is to reach out to veterans, active duty and reserve military members and DoD civilians, as well as their families living abroad to encourage them to register to vote by facilitating get-out-the-vote (GOTV) efforts while also developing sensible and sensitive strategies for encouraging active service members at U.S. overseas military bases to vote and to engage them in advocacy for our policy positions and to provide a forum for DA members to understand better the issues and concerns affecting our military forces, veterans, and their families outside of the United States.

Our guiding principles are to support all efforts to ensure that veterans’ and military families’ issues, concerns and agendas are championed, to support the DA global  agenda on GOTV with a focus on active duty military, veterans and military families and DoD civilians and to sponsor and advocate for veterans’ and military families’ concerns and issues. 

The  Veterans and Military Families Caucus welcomes your suggestions. Contact us at [email protected] .
