Press Release
Interested applicants are encouraged to apply on website

(Timonium, MD) – Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD) is seeking applicants for his new Veterans Advisory Council for Maryland’s Second District, launched today in honor of Veterans Day. The Council – for which veterans, veterans’ spouses and caregivers are invited to apply – will advise the Congressman on relevant policy and legislation and promote awareness of veterans’ issues throughout the Second District. 

Specifically, Council members will:

  • Provide Congressman Ruppersberger with guidance on legislation relating to veterans’ affairs;
  • Identify veterans’ issues that need additional public attention; 
  • Work with Veteran Service Organizations to promote community outreach and awareness of veterans’ issues and,  
  • Honor and recognize troops and veterans by developing and implementing an award program throughout the Second District.

Congressman Ruppersberger represents tens of thousands of active duty servicemembers and veterans who live in Maryland’s Second District, which is home to Fort Meade, Fort Howard, Aberdeen Proving Ground, the National Security Agency, U.S. Cyber Command as well as several National Guard facilities. In addition to serving on the Defense Appropriations Committee, Congressman Ruppersberger co-chairs the bipartisan House Army Caucus and is Chairman of the U.S. Naval Academy Board of Visitors, on which he has served for the last 12 years.

“Our nation’s heroes deserve a seat at the table. This Veterans Day, I am proud to honor the service and sacrifice of our veterans by providing them with the opportunity to directly impact matters affecting them and their loved ones,” said Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger. “I encourage all eligible individuals to apply to my Veterans Advisory Council and look forward to working with them as I continue advocating to improve veterans’ quality of life.”
