Boxer Spotlight : Senate Military Family Caucus
The Senate Military Family Caucus was established with the recognition that when a service member puts on a uniform, the entire family sacrifices for our country. Our military families deserve all of the support we can provide.
The Senate Military Family Caucus aims to explore and substantively address the unique and growing challenges faced by our military families including childcare, education, employment, health care and the effects of multiple deployments on the mental health and well-being of spouses, caregivers and children. The Caucus also works to bring together military families with Members of Congress, staff and organizations working on behalf of military families through events and briefings to increase education, communication and coordination on these issues.
Created in July 2010 by Senators Boxer and Burr (R-NC), the Senate Military Family Caucus has grown to over one quarter of the U.S. Senate and hopes to continue increasing its membership in the 112th Congress.
