Wilmington, DE – In his weekly message, Governor Markell marks Veterans Day and honors the men and women who have served our nation in uniform by celebrating Delaware’s success in ending veteran homeless through a coordinated statewide initiative announced last year. The Governor recognizes the many stakeholders who helped attain this goal and who remain committed to sustaining this commitment to our veterans in the years to come.

“In 2015, we committed to ending and preventing homelessness among veterans in Delaware,” Governor Markell said. “I said something then that remains true today: Even one homeless veteran is one too many. That’s why this week I was thrilled to announce that – after more than a year’s work with our local, state and federal partners – we have effectively ended veteran homelessness in our state. Thank you to everyone who has made it possible to get our veterans the help they need and deserve. Showing them the same level of commitment they made to our country will help keep Delaware moving forward.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
