Rep. Wenstrup reports for duty

Congressman Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) took the first two weeks of August to fulfill his military obligations, traveling to Fort McCoy in Wisconsin to complete his annual Army Reserve training. Wenstrup, a Reservist for 16 years, must complete a required amount of training each year. Wenstrup is able to fit his military service into his August schedule on top of local visits with Ohio businesses and constituents.

“These two weeks are a great opportunity to work shoulder to shoulder with our nation’s finest, the men and women serving in uniform,” Wenstrup said.

Wenstrup joined the Army Reserve in 1998, deploying to Iraq in 2005 to 2006 as a combat surgeon. He holds the rank of Lt. Colonel and drills monthly at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center while in Washington, DC.
