National Defense & Foreign Policy

As a member of the Senate Committee on Armed Services, Senator Blumenthal is committed to protecting U.S. national security and providing servicemembers and their families with the resources they need to defend our nation. Senator Blumenthal believes a strong military and close cooperation with allies are critical to defending American security interests and confronting the shared global challenges we face. Through the annual National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), he champions comprehensive benefits to support servicemembers and military families during and after their service. He is also proud to represent the Connecticut defense industrial base workforce, from large prime contractors to small businesses within the supply chain.
