CADCA

Supporting our nation's troops, veterans, and military families is critical to our national security and to strengthening our communities. It is also a top priority for of Corporation for National and Community Service, stemming from the bipartisan Serve America Act. On Thursday, CNCS joined forces with the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) and the National Guard Bureau (NGR) to further reinforce this commitment with the launch of VetCorps.

African American History Month has ended, and while the official celebration is over, our contributions
to society don't end on any given particular day. Likewise, our African American service members
continue to contribute and make history, even after they take off their uniforms for the last time.

Today, a group of young men and women, many of them veterans, will stand up and pledge to “get
things done for America”. They will join a legion of more than 750,000 Americans who have served in
AmeriCorps and become the first class to also serve as VetCorps members.

The following post was originally published on the White House Blog on November 19, 2012. Arthur T.
Dean is the Chairman and CEO of the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America, and a retired Major
General in the U.S. Army.
