Military Families and Veterans

As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Mikulski is committed to supporting our veterans and military families. Senator Mikulski is fighting to make sure all returning service members and their families have the health care, jobs and benefits they earned and deserve.

"Each and every member of our military is part of the American family. Their service is a tremendous sacrifice and great risk. These are ordinary men and women called on to act in an extraordinary way. All Americans owe them a debt of gratitude." – U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski
