Brian Bergen took an interesting path to his current position as an Assemblyman representing New Jersey’s 25th Legislative District.
A member of his high school track team, he attracted the attention of the coaches at the United States Military Academy where he graduated as a second lieutenant with a degree in computer science.
Following a distinguished 8-year military career in the United States Army, Brian earned a pair of master’s degrees and started two businesses.
Feeling a need to continue serving, Brian entered the political world where he has been a staunch defender of military veterans’ rights and benefits.
Brian joined Jim Monaghan on the WDHA Morning Jolt on Veterans Day. His passion for our veterans is quite obvious, especially when it comes to talking about how we can really make a difference in their lives.
