Ryan is a decorated veteran, having spent 23 years as a U.S. Navy SEAL. He believes in peace through strength and that America has a responsibility to assist our allies in times of need and carry out humanitarian aid missions.
Montana is one of the leading states in the nation with nearly 1 in 10 of us serving in the military. Being the only veteran in Montana’s Congressional delegation, Ryan knows how important it is to fully fund our military, provide for our troops and honor our promises to our veterans. That’s why Ryan has continually advocated for giving our troops a pay raise and improving care at the VA and for veterans who live more than 40 miles away from the closest VA facility.
