About Brad

Dr. Brad Wenstrup’s life has centered on hard work, service, and sacrifice. As a doctor, combat surgeon and small business owner, Brad Wenstrup has a deep understanding of the issues facing America.

After graduating from the University of Cincinnati and going on to earn a medical degree in podiatric medicine and surgery, Wenstrup established a private practice in Cincinnati and has treated patients in Southwest Ohio for over 26 years.

In 1998, seeing signs of freedom being threatened, Wenstrup accepted an officer’s commission with the U.S. Army Reserve, serving in the Medical Service Corps.

In 2005, he deployed for a year of active duty in Iraq where he 

served as a Combat Surgeon and the Chief of Surgery with the 344th Combat Support Hospital. For his service and actions in Iraq, Wenstrup was awarded the Bronze Star and Combat Action Badge. Wenstrup continues his service in the U.S. Army Reserve as a Lieutenant Colonel and serves at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

Following his deployment to Iraq, Wenstrup saw a need for strong leadership in Cincinnati. In 2009, Wenstrup built a strong grassroots coalition and ran for Mayor of Cincinnati. Since 2009, Wenstrup continued to actively support the war against terrorism and reducing the size of government while opposing harmful legislation such as Obamacare.

In 2012, Wenstrup ran a successful campaign for the U.S House of Representatives.  He currently serves on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, House Armed Services Committee and House Committee on Veteran's Affairs.

Being involved in the community has always been important to Wenstrup. He volunteered for over a decade as a Big Brother as part of the Big Brothers/ Big Sisters organization. Additionally, he is currently a Board Member of Boys Hope/ Girls Hope, and a member of the Cincinnati Rotary.

Brad, his wife Monica and their son, Brad Jr., live in Hamilton County.
