Veterans and Military

As the daughter of a World War II veteran, Chair of the Appropriations Subcommittee that funds the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and a senior member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, Senator Murray is committed to making sure our country fulfills its promise to care for our veterans long after they return home from duty. She knows the sacrifices that veterans and their families have made and continue to make, and she’ll keep fighting for them as their voice in the other Washington.

Senator Murray has fought for increased benefits, housing assistance, veterans’ clinics throughout Washington state, and more accountability from the VA. She believes the country should do more to increase education opportunities, expand employment assistance, address the mental and physical trauma servicemembers may experience, and reduce wait times for veterans with pending claims or appeals. She is focused on helping women veterans overcome the unique obstacles they face to getting care and services, while also fighting to help make sure veterans can live independently while receiving the care they need. Senator Murray works closely with leaders in Washington state and across the country to make sure military families are supported during their service with quality housing, paid parental leave, and affordable child care.
