Resolution Number SAC 09.13

Military and Veterans Outreach

WHEREAS, Democrats have been at the forefront of supporting our troops and veterans, believing that to be consistent with opposition to certain military actions such as the 2003 invasion of Iraq; and

WHEREAS,
the President and the First Lady have declared Troops, Military Families and Veterans as top priorities; the United States Congress has declared 2009 the “Year of the Military Family" and the California Democratic Party shows support of our President, the First Lady, and the United States Congress in this effort by extending its support to military and veteran outreach and service projects within our communities;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED,
that the California Democratic Party supports the President, First Lady, and the United States Congress by calling on all Democrats and Democratic Party organizations to reach out to the serving military, military families, and veterans by (1) adopting and supporting a local or national military or veterans agency or nonprofit, and (2) hosting local service days and events to let all military, veterans, and their families know that Democrats honor them, their service and their sacrifice; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED,
that the California Democratic Party goes on record in support of the “Year of the Military Family 2009” and calls upon all California Democrats and Democratic organizations to create seats at the policy table for them, and to take active measures to inform the military and veteran communities that the Democratic Party honors their service to our nation and welcomes their active participation.
