We work to get veteran-friendly Democrats elected who understand veterans and military families.
What we do
We seek Democratic veterans across the state to work together and help get Veteran-friendly candidates elected to office in Oklahoma.
We write endorsement statements, specific to the candidate, for use in campaign literature and websites.
This year, we intend our own “boots on the ground” canvassing days in close races. Events may need to be adjusted as the pandemic continues, with emphasis on social media, and we have plans for that.
And while working to elect Democrats, we continue our efforts to defend veterans’ interests, as in our active campaign to protect the tax exemption for military widows. We honor a vet-friendly Legislator of the Year, Sen. George Young, and will this year give a special award to Congresswoman Kendra Horn for her untiring efforts for us. We also host well-attended forums popular with candidates, including our annual pancake breakfast.
Join us for a virtual zoom meeting, or reach out to be active on the Committee. We welcome your efforts.
If you are a Democratic veteran, a member of military family, or you support veterans, please join. Membership is $10 annually.
Thank you to everyone who attended our Pancake Breakfast!
We hope to see you next year!
