Our Mission & Purpose

The Delaware Military Support Organization was was established to assist the Dover Air Force Base and all military units located in the state of Delaware in caring for all who serve. Our board is comprised of volunteers from our community who are thankful for sacrifices made by our military personnel and their families.

With the help of the regional business community and individuals, our goal is to support the health, welfare and morale of the military men and women and their families where needed, and in many cases, where no other help is available.  

Our Story

Delaware Military Support Organization was formed in 2013 when Founder and Chairman Bill Hare realized that something was missing in the state of Delaware. While there were many necessary and worthwhile organizations helping veterans, he noticed that there was little available to help active duty military members and their families who were undergoing financial hardship.  Based on a similar organization he had learned about in Spokane, WA, the Delaware Military Support solicits sponsorships from businesses, only allowing one type of business per trade or industry to represent the organization. Funds that are raised are used to support local military members and their families who may be struggling financially. The organization received approval for non-profit 501 (c)(3) status in 2014 and has since focused on increasing awareness, while continuing to provide support and assistance to military members and their families.
