Congressman, an Army combat veteran, serves on the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs
Washington, February 5, 2019
Congressman Max Rose, an Army combat veteran who serves on the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, today joined a bipartisan meeting with the Secretary of Veterans’ Affairs Robert Wilkie at the White House to discuss priorities and challenges facing the VA.
“When it comes to making sure our veterans are taken care of, I’ll meet with anyone, anytime,” Rose said. “This was a great chance for all of us to come together and make sure we’re putting the needs of our veterans first and foremost, and not letting party or politics get in the way.”
Rose is the only veteran with a healthcare background serving in the majority on the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs and the first post-9/11 combat veteran elected in New York City. He served as a Ranger-qualified Infantry Captain on active duty in the Army and he continues to serve in the National Guard. Rose deployed to Afghanistan where he earned a Purple Heart, Bronze Star, and Combat Infantryman Badge. After returning from service, Rose was the Chief of Staff at Brightpoint Health, a non-profit healthcare provider in New York City.
