I was born February 2nd 1984 in Abrams Wisconsin to two loving parents Curt and Kathy VandenPlas. I am the first of three boys.
I attended Abrams Elementary and then moved to Washington Middle School, followed by Oconto Falls High School graduating in 2002. Very shortly after graduation I entered Army Basic Training in Fort. Benning Georgia graduating infantry school the following September being one of the first from Wisconsin to graduate from the school.
In 2005 I found myself deployed in Operation Iraqi Freedom with B. Co. 2/127th Infantry Battalion and continued with C. 1/121st Field artillery returning home in 2007. I worked several jobs in the district from maintenance supervisor in the trucking industry, to the ship yards in Marinette and Sturgeon Bay.
In 2016 while working and attending UWGB, I married the love of my life Emily VandenPlas as shortly after we invested in a sustainable vegetable farm Door County Farm LLC. I am very excited to be your Congressmen and the hard work needed to bring this country back to freedom.
