Staten Island Rep. Max Rose will take off his congressional suit and put on his Army uniform as the military steps up its coronavirus aid to New York.

Rose, a captain in the Army National Guard, will deploy as of Wednesday as an operations officer at facilities in Staten Island, his office said in a statement.

Rose, who was an officer in the war in Afghanistan in 2012-2013, was a company commander in the Guard before his upset win in the 2018 election.

Rose, a Democrat, said in a statement his staff would continue to administer his office while he was deployed.
