New York congressman activated to serve in Guard's coronavirus response

One New York congressman will be changing his job from battling for coronavirus help in the halls of Congress to fighting the outbreak on the front lines with the National Guard.

Democratic Rep. Max Rose, a captain in the Army National Guard, was activated this week for relief efforts in New York City and will serve as an operations officer over the next few weeks. His mobilization will start Wednesday.

In a statement, Rose said his office would continue to conduct normal constituent services while he fulfills his military duty.

“Over the past month I have seen acts of incredible bravery and sacrifice by our first responders, nurses, doctors, and essential workers who never thought they’d be on the frontlines of a crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Rose, who served as an active-duty Army officer in Afghanistan from in 2012.
