Joseph Rocha is a veteran with a lifelong dedication to service.

Joseph joined the Navy on his eighteenth birthday, quickly advancing to become a bomb dog handler, tracking down explosives in the Persian Gulf. After he was discharged under Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, he became an advocate for repeal, swearing he would re-enlist and keep fighting to protect his country, as soon as it would let him. Following the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, Joseph rejoined the military, rising to the rank of a Marine Corps Captain and prosecutor. Joseph is running for Congress out of the same sense of duty that has guided him his entire life. Joseph will fight for the hardworking people who have too often been left behind by career politicians who only look out for themselves.
