Veterans & Military
“Every day, we honor the service of our men and women who volunteer to protect our nation, and to their families who unconditionally support them and endure the hardships of the military lifestyle.”
Maryland is home to tens of thousands of active, reserve and retired military. These Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen have our utmost respect and appreciation. I will stand with them when they fight on the front lines and when they return to the home front. I remain steadfast in my commitment to provide our Nation’s military with the resources it needs to accomplish its mission, and to provide our military families with the first-class benefits, pay and health care that they deserve. I will continue to advocate for the mental wellness of our troops and their families.
Maryland is also home to 15 military bases ranging from the U.S. Naval Academy, which trains our future naval officers, to the Aberdeen Proving Ground, which tests and develops our future military technology. Crossing the state from Patuxent to Fort Detrick, we are proud of the home that we provide to our military and will do everything possible to protect our facilities from any future changes in our national military profile, and ensure continued funding for research and development in our military labs.
