Our Mission


The Veterans and Military Coalition of the Ozarks (VMCO) (hereinafter referred to as the “Coalition”) promotes communication and coordination between all recognized veterans and military organizations in Southern Missouri and Northern Arkansas. The Coalition’s objective is that affiliated Veteran and Military Service Organizations working together on issues of mutual agreement, can harness the grassroots support of more than 57,000 local veteran/military constituents and families to accomplish far more than by working on these initiatives as separate organizations. The Coalition maintains communication with all Coalition organizations to provide a unity of effort and keeping all informed of local, state and federal legislation, programs and initiatives affecting veterans, military members and families; thereby, achieving common goals and maximizing positive impacts. The Veterans and Military Coalition of the Ozarks is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization qualifying under Section 501(c) of the Internal Revenue Code.
