Pat Ryan for Congress

After graduating with honors from West Point, Pat served two combat tours in Iraq, including a tour as the lead intelligence officer for an infantry battalion of 1,000 soldiers and officers responsible for ground operations in Mosul. After leaving the military with the rank of Captain, he continued his service to the nation in the technology sector by tackling a problem he experienced on the battlefield.

While in a war zone in Iraq, Pat experienced how outdated technology was limiting and endangering our troops. In response, Pat launched a technology firm that worked to save lives by equipping troops with better tools to understand the combat landscape and track battlefield events in real time. In just a few years, Pat grew the small business from 5 to 150 employees, over half of whom were veterans.
