Tommy Amason, a Command Sergeant Major in the Army Reserves and two-tour Iraq War veteran, qualified as a Republican for the Congressional House seat in District 2 last week.
Amason served in the U.S. Army for nearly 30 years and is now running for Congress to take that dedication of service to a different arena.
“I’m running for U.S. Congress because after literally hours of prayer and pressure from my community, I feel like this is my calling,” Amason said in a statement. “My entire life has been spent in service to the people of this great nation and state, and now I’m trying to serve them in a different capacity.”
