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.
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.
