Democrats have always answered their country’s call to duty and are proud of our military contributions to the nation.

We support:

  • Fairchild AFB, and our National Guard facilities, as an integral part of our community and our national defense by America’s armed services, not by mercenaries or contractors
  • expanding coverage, including psychiatric services, for veterans suffering from service-related disorders
  • preservation and complete funding of all VA hospitals and medical treatment facilities
  • the right for military retirees to declare service injuries after a term of service
  • equal compensation for Guard and Reserve members activated for combat operations
  • full training of all American personnel in the mission to which they are deployed
  • the right to serve free of sexual harassment and sexual assault
  • the right and responsibility of each woman in the military to make her own reproductive decisions
