FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Leavenworth, Kansas — January 19, 2018 — Last night nearly every House Democrat voted against our military men and women, many serving thousands of miles away from home. Tyler Tannahill is a Marine veteran and an advocate for military veterans.
“The Paul Davis Democrats voted to shut down government,” said Tannahill. “They used our troops as a political weapon — a reckless tactic that shows their priority is not our military men and women put in harms way.”
Tannahill served in Iraq and Afghanistan, returning home to advocate for veterans issues, including improved services at VA hospitals. He serves on Congressman Kevin Yoder’s Military & Veterans Advisory Council and previously interned for Senator Jerry Moran. Tannahill has appeared on Fox News advocating for improved veterans services, and PTSD awareness.
“We know who Paul Davis will stand with when Democrats are playing games with the lives of those committed to military service,” said Tannahill. “Those aren’t Kansas values. I will bring Kansas values to Washington, and protect our military, those who serve and those who have served.”
Tannahill graduated Kansas State University, and is the brother of K-State Football and NFL tight end Travis Tannahill. He lives in Leavenworth with his wife and newborn son.
