Who are they?

Raised in Ecuador and Columbia, Dan is a Navy SEAL veteran who was inspired to run for Congress after witnessing the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. As a SEAL he lost his right eye in an IED detonation and wears an eyepatch – a mention of which stirred up some controversy involving Saturday Night Live, which was since been resolved.

Pre-Congress?

Dan received two Bronze Star Medals, the Purple Heart, and the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal with Valor for his time serving as a SEAL.
