Congressional Military Family Caucus

Meeting with First Lady Michelle Obama

Meeting with First Lady Michelle Obama

In 2009, I joined with Rep. Sanford Bishop (D-GA) in a bipartisan way to found the Congressional Military Family Caucus. The goal of the Caucus is to bring together Members of Congress, Administration officials, and service members and their families in a common purpose to draw attention to the needs of military families and advocate legislative ideas on their behalf.

During the 112th Congress, the Caucus is addressing critical issues that uniquely challenge military families with a particular focus on mental health, Wounded Warrior support, homeless veterans, health care and education.
