Congressman Derrick Van Orden proudly represents the people of Wisconsin's 3rd Congressional District.

An American patriot and retired Navy SEAL, Derrick has dedicated his life to serving and protecting Americans. Now as a congressman, he continues the fight and advocate for our farmers, veterans, workers, tradesmen, job creators, seniors, and families of Wisconsin.

Derrick's life of public service began when he joined the Navy at the age of 18. He had the honor to serve our great nation for 26 years, retiring as a Navy SEAL Senior Chief. During that time, he completed five combat deployments.

Additionally, he served in the Horn of Africa, Asia, Europe, and South and Central America. During his tour in Europe in 2012, he was responsible for planning Special Operations contingency operations for the European Continent. Derrick also became involved in acting during his military service - starring in major motion picture films.

After retirement, Derrick and his wife Sara Jane, with whom he will celebrate over 30 years of marriage on February 15, decided to reopen their local village cafe. This led to a two-year adventure culminating with the reestablishment of the cafe as a gathering place for friends and family.

Together, Derrick and Sara Jane live in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin. They have four children and eight grandchildren.
