A lifelong resident of Bergen County, Nick De Gregorio attended Saint Catharine Interparochial School (now Academy of Our Lady) in Glen Rock and Bergen Catholic High School in Oradell. It was as a junior at Bergen Catholic that Nick experienced the tragic events of September 11th, 2001. Just sixteen years old at the time, he decided he would join the United States Marine Corps when he came of age.

Nick received his undergraduate degree from Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. He was a four-year member of the varsity track and field team and was elected team captain in his senior year. During summer breaks, Nick attended the United States Marine Corps Officer Candidates School in Quantico, Virginia, and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant upon graduation from Bucknell in 2007. He would deploy four times during his nine-year Marine Corps career.

After rigorous infantry training, Nick was promptly deployed to the Iraq-Syria border in 2009 to prevent the smuggling of weapons and foreign fighters into Iraq’s major cities, where they would do great harm to US forces and Iraqi civilians. From 2010 to 2013, Nick operated throughout the Pacific and in Africa. In 2014, Nick requested voluntary orders to Afghanistan and was embedded with US Army Special Forces in the eastern provinces of Nangarhar and Kunar–considered to be among the most hostile locations in the country. Official reports state that Nick was engaged in heavy combat with the Taliban and al-Qaeda on dozens of occasions.

Upon leaving the military in 2016 with the rank of Major, Nick enrolled in graduate studies at Georgetown University. He received two degrees in three years: an MBA and a Master of Science in Foreign Service (International Relations), with distinction.

After a brief career in financial services, Nick was ultimately compelled to run for Congress in the wake of Joe Biden’s shameful retreat from Afghanistan last summer. Nick is running to secure a better America for his children and for all future generations, which includes fighting socialism, ensuring that parents–not the government–are empowered to make decisions for their children, and restoring America’s position of strength on the world stage.

Nick lives in Fair Lawn with his wife Emily, and their two children, Siena (age 2) and Luca (age 8 months). He announced his candidacy on November 10, 2021, the 246th birthday of the United States Marine Corps.
