The Delaware Veterans Coalition met Jan. 30 for its bi-monthly meeting at FOP Lodge 3, Kitts Hummock.

The guest speaker was Maj. Kurt A. Schmidbauer, commander of the 436th Comptroller Squadron and Wing Staff Agencies. He is the chief financial officer responsible for funds accounting, budget planning, execution and analysis for Dover’s $395 million operating budget.

Schmidbauer addressed the assets at the base and its award-winning community outreach. He took questions afterward.

Also present were representatives of the University of Delaware's Blue Hen Veterans and representatives from Delaware Technical College's Veterans Inspiring Progress.

The Veterans Coalition, now in its sixth year, is reaching out to all generations of the state's veterans, including active duty, National Guard, recently discharged and retired.
