Wenstrup selected as Vice Chairman of House Armed Services Military Personnel Subcommittee

Congressman Brad Wenstrup

Last week, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-TX) announced the leadership for the House Armed Services Committee for the 115th Congress, including Congressman Brad Wenstrup, DPM (R-OH), as Vice Chairman of the Military Personnel Subcommittee.
The Military Personnel Subcommittee is responsible for military personnel policy, reserve component integration and employment issues, military health care, military education, and POW/MIA issues. This subcommittee focuses on ensuring troops and their loved ones are receiving the first class benefits that they deserve.
“As a Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve who previously served as a combat surgeon in Iraq, Congressman Wenstrup is a natural fit to serve as Vice Chairman of the House Armed Services Military Personnel Subcommittee,” said Chairman Thornberry. “He’s been an exceptional committee member with deep insights into the challenges facing our warfighters that are informed by his experience as a decorated military veteran. I look forward to continuing our cooperation on these issues.”
“It is the strength, courage, and resilience of our warfighters that has made the United States Armed Forces the greatest military in the world. I look forward to continuing to work alongside Chairman Thornberry, Chairman Coffman, and my colleagues on the Military Personnel Subcommittee to ensure our servicemembers are receiving the support, care, and benefits they deserve and have earned,” said Wenstrup.
“As a doctor, Army Reserve Officer, and Iraq War veteran myself, it is not just a duty, but an honor, to fight for those who have fought for us.”
Congressman Brad Wenstrup has served in the U.S. Army Reserve since 1998, currently holding the rank of Colonel.  In 2005-06, he served a tour in Iraq as a combat surgeon, and was awarded a Bronze Star and Combat Action Badge for his service.
During his time in Congress, Wenstrup is fulfilling his Reserve duties by treating patients at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda. He also currently serves as Chairman of the Veterans Affairs Health Subcommittee.
