Veteran Seth Moulton has represented the North Shore in the House since 2015.
A former Marine Corps officer, Moulton led one of the first infantry platoons to enter Baghdad. He served a total of four tours of duty in Iraq from 2003 to 2008. Moulton was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal for valor after he led a platoon that cleared a hostile stronghold. He later received the Bronze Star Medal after “fearlessly [exposing] himself to enemy fire" during the 2004 Battle of Najaf.
Moulton was prominently featured in the 2007 Academy Award-nominated documentary No End in Sight. In the film, he criticizes the U.S. government's handling of the occupation of Iraq.
Moulton serves on the Budget Committee, the House Armed Services Committee and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. He is a member of the New Democrat Coalition and the Blue Collar Caucus.
Representative Moulton is a close ally of J Street.
In May 2022, he signed the bicameral Merkley-Stansbury letter pushing back against proposed mass evictions and demolitions in the West Bank communities of Masafer Yatta. Then, in June 2022, Moulton signed the Price-Lee-Wexton-Castro letter which pushed back against “flashpoints” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, including settlement expansion, annexation and incitement to violence against Israelis and Palestinians.
