From his web site: Trivedi, on veterans -- As a former Lieutenant Commander in the Navy, battalion surgeon with the Marines and Iraq War veteran, I am deeply committed to being a strong advocate for service personnel, veterans, and their families. The men and women who selflessly serve our country should always be in our thoughts, and as your Congressman I will be focused on their issues.
