House Armed Services Committee

Congressman Bergman proudly serves as a member of the House Armed Services Committee - including in his role as Chairman of the Intelligence and Special Operations Subcommittee and also as a Member of the Military Personnel Subcommittee.

As we face uncertain times, military readiness and adequate funding are essential. As new threats emerge, our military must remain the strongest and most lethal force in the world. Accountability and oversight are paramount as we work to ensure every dollar spent on defense is maximized to best protect our Nation and our allies. As with all Committee assignments, Rep. Bergman will seek to utilize his role on the House Armed Services Committee to represent the needs of Michigan’s First District.

Congressman Bergman served in the United States Marine Corps for 40 years, as a helicopter pilot in Vietnam, and most recently as Commander of Marine Forces North/Marine Forces Reserve. He retired in 2009 at the rank of Lieutenant General. After being elected in November 2016, Bergman became the highest ranking combat Veteran ever elected to Congress. 

Veterans Affairs Committee

Serving on the House Committee on Veteran's Affairs is a passion of Congressman Bergman's. Michigan's 1st District has one of the highest percentage of Veterans of any Congressional District in the Nation. These Veterans have sacrificed so much for the liberty of our country and he is dedicated to working on their behalf in Washington, D.C. He has served on this Committee since coming to Congress where he has championed groundbreaking Veterans’ legislation, held multiple field hearings and round-table discussions in Michigan's First District, and pushed for accountability from within VA.

Congressman Bergman serves on both the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee and the Health Subcommittee. 

In 2023, Rep. Bergman returned as a Member of the House Budget Committee, after serving on the Committee during his First term in Congress. Creating a responsible federal budget and reining in our Government's out-of-control spending habits are a passion of the Congressman. 

Rep. Bergman will continue to hold the President accountable for his disastrous fiscal policies that are crushing Americans livelihoods and way of life.
