Feehan, fifth from the right in the photo above, joined with fellow veterans, VA workers, and AFGE members at a rally last year calling on the Trump administration to fill 49,000 vacant positions in the Department of Veterans Affairs.

"When it comes to serving his country, Dan Feehan doesn't just talk the talk, he walks the walk. After serving two combat tours in Iraq, he continued his public service as an elementary and middle school teacher and later as the assistant secretary of Defense for military readiness in the Obama administration," James said.

"Dan Feehan will fight in Congress to support federal workers and the programs and services we deliver to the public every day."
