UWM endowment to support military veterans

by Michael Polzella

Honoring her late husband, Vietnam veteran and beloved orthopedic surgeon Michael Kubly, Billie Kubly gifted UW-Milwaukee with $1 million to establish the Dr. Michael C. Kubly Military & Veterans Mental Health Endowment. After the couple lost their son to depression, they became fervent supporters of mental health services.

“Our soldiers make so many sacrifices,” Kubly said. “Veterans and military personnel have unique challenges regarding mental health, and it was important to me to address that.”

Grateful for Kubly’s support, UW-Milwaukee officials plan on assisting military members and veterans throughout the school and community, through campus-based research and resources.
