Hung Cao is a retired Navy Captain

 who served in Special Operations

 for twenty-five years. He and his

 wife April are the parents of five

beautiful children whom they

homeschool. After their thirteenth

move across the United States

 and around the world in the 

service of our nation, Hung 

and April made their home 

in Purcellville, Virginia where they have been active in their community and their church, Cornerstone Chapel for the last five years.

Hung is a refugee from Vietnam and immigrant to the United States. Hung’s family escaped in 1975 shortly before the fall of Saigon. After a brief stay in the United States, his family relocated to West Africa where he was educated in French schools before returning to Annandale, Virginia in 1982. Hung is a proud member of the inaugural graduating class at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology. Moved by the opportunities afforded to his family, Hung vowed to serve his newly adopted country and was accepted to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. Upon graduation, he served as a Deep Sea Diver and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Officer. As a Navy Diver, he salvaged several plane wreckages including the recovery of John F. Kennedy Jr, Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, and Lauren Bessette. Hung deployed in combat to Iraq, Afghanistan and Somalia serving alongside Special Forces and SEAL Teams.

Hung’s non-combat assignments included balancing the Navy’s $140 Billion budget at the Pentagon, writing Department of Defense policy, working with the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force in San Diego California, establishing a Sheriff’s bomb squad in Monterey, California, and participating in humanitarian and disaster relief in Pakistan. In his private time, Hung has served multiple non-profit organizations and gone on mission trips around the world. He and his family established a 501(c)3 which builds beeping Easter Eggs for children with visual impairments.

Hung returned from his last deployment to Afghanistan in January 2021. As he was retiring from the United States Navy in October, Kabul fell, eerily similar to his native Saigon, leaving hundreds of Americans stranded and abandoning our allies. These events and the issues that are crippling our nation prompted him to run for the U.S. House of Representatives in Virginia’s tenth Congressional District. Washington has forgotten that it works for the American people and needs a clear reminder, as Ronald Reagan said, that “we the people tell the government what to do; it doesn’t tell us”. Hung believes that Virginia needs a Representative who upholds the values of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Unleash America PAC is dedicated to supporting leaders and policies in Virginia and across the United States that embody the American spirit of resilience and ingenuity. The same spirit that was first ignited by Patriots who sought control of their own destiny. The same spirit that brought about the most significant industrial revolution in the history of the world and the same spirit that led the Greatest Generation to defeat the greatest evil we have ever known.

In the last decade, there’s been a pervasive narrative in our society that being American is something to be ashamed of and that our great American Experiment is failing. This defeatist attitude, perpetuated by elected leaders on the Left in Washington and Richmond, has led to a severe decline in the classroom, the economy, and our American culture.

We believe our country’s best days are ahead and are committed to working towards a future where all Americans can reach their full potential and thrive. We have an obligation to elect leaders who will restore confidence in American politics. We need to let Americans be Americans. To create and innovate the way only Americans do so we continue being the beacon of hope for future generations.

It’s time to Unleash America.

I joined this race to give back to the country that has given my family and me so much. The U.S. gave me a home, a flag to stand under, and an opportunity. I’ve been committed to returning the favor ever since.

I am incredibly proud of our campaign and the movement we’ve started in Virginia. Thank you to all the voters, volunteers, neighbors, and friends who entrusted me with your support.
