DAVE GROGAN - A MAN OF ACTION

DAVE GROGAN - A MAN OF ACTION

GET INVOLVED IN YOUR COMMUNITY

Dave is actively involved in various organizations that are having a major impact on his district #3 and the City of Bowie as a whole. He believes that every citizen and its household should be responsible for its community affairs, therefore, he likes to educate the community on the various activities and committees that they have an opportunity to partake.

Dave encourages all of us to get involved in maintaining the high standards of excellence for all Bowie citizens and make a positive impact in our neighborhoods. 

As a Veteran and a Veteran’s Advocate, Dave's main concerns for veterans centers around the high rate of suicides and homelessness that plaque returning veterans. Dave works tirelessly to help Veterans obtain resources and support in these areas by aligning with organizations throughout the state such as: 

The Free State Marines Detachment, MCL, Bowie, MD, Department of Veterans Affairs
Vet Centers
American Legion
Veterans of Foreign Wars
Disabled American Veterans
AMVETS
Wounded Warrior Project
Hire Heroes USA
National Coalition for Homeless Veterans
