Washington – Congressman Jack Bergman announced that he will be returning to the House Veterans Affairs Committee in the 116th Congress. He has served for two years on the committee where he helped author groundbreaking Veterans’ legislation and held multiple field hearings and round-table discussions in Michigan’s First District. Congressman Bergman released the following statement on his return: 

“I’m honored to once again have the opportunity to serve our nation’s Veterans in my role on the VA Committee. We made major strides in the 115th Congress by passing the VA MISSION Act, streamlining the VA bureaucracy, and  ensuring accountability at VA. The First District is home to thousands of Veterans who have sacrificed so much for the liberty of our nation, and I look forward to continuing the work we’ve begun to ensure our Veterans are receiving the quality care they deserve,” said Bergman.

Congressman Jack Bergman served in the United States Marine Corps for 40 years, as a helicopter pilot in Vietnam, and most recently as Commander of Marine Forces North/Marine Forces Reserve. He retired in 2009 at the rank of Lieutenant General. After being elected in November 2016, Bergman became the highest ranking combat Veteran ever elected to Congress.
