Supporting our troops isn’t the same as supporting a foreign policy of endless intervention in other people’s civil wars.
Our goal is to end the Forever Wars and encourage Congress, specifically Rep. Liz Cheney, to support President Trump’s plan to withdraw our troops from Syria, and then, hopefully, Afghanistan and all the other places we bleed American blood and treasure into the soil with no clear mission or vote by those whom We The People elect to represent us.
About Rep. Tyler Lindholm:
Rep. Lindholm, a longtime resident of Sundance, graduated from Sundance High School in 2001 and then served five years in the U.S. Navy as a helicopter electronics technician, during which he was awarded two Naval and Marine Corp Achievement Medals and two Humanitarian Service Medals for his support of the rescue and relief efforts following the tsunami of Indonesia and Hurricane Katrina.
Tyler has also served as a Crook County volunteer firefighter, including fighting the Oil Creek Fire in Weston County in 2012, and like many residents of Wyoming, has worked in both the energy and agriculture industries. He was a lead journeyman electrician for Basin Electric Power Cooperative, and he is vice president of his family’s cattle ranch. Working in these fields have shown him that over-regulation and an overbearing government can stunt the growth of business and jobs in Wyoming, hurting the families of our state in the process.
Tyler in 2014 was elected to represent the people of Crook and Weston counties in the Wyoming House of Representatives. Now in his third term, he has become a nationally recognized leader in the development and enactment of precedent-setting “blockchain” technology legislation that is improving the quality and price of agricultural products and attracting new business, industry, and jobs to Wyoming.
He serves as Majority Whip and as chairman of the House Corporations, Elections & Political Subdivisions Committee and as a member of the House Rules & Procedures Committee and the Blockchain Task Force and an alternate on the Select Natural Resource Funding Committee. He also serves as a member of the Communications, Financial Services & Interstate Commerce Committee and the Redistricting & Elections Task Force of the National Council of State Legislatures, and of the Canada Relations Committee of the Council of State Governments (West).
In two previous terms, he served as chairman of the House Blockchain Task Force and of the Select Federal Natural Resource Management Committee, and as a member of the House committees on Minerals, Business & Economic Development; Agriculture, State and Public Lands & Water Resources; and the Task Force on Digital Information Privacy.
Before being elected to the legislature, he served as chairman of the Crook County Republican Party and still serves as the youngest member-at-large on the executive committee of the Wyoming Republican Party. He was also a 2013 class fellow of the Wyoming Leadership Education and Development training, a course sponsored by Wyoming Agricultural Leadership Council and the Wyoming Business Council to develop leaders in our state’s farm and ranch industry.
Tyler and his wife Charity live in Sundance with their four children — Willow, Lilly, Caleb, and Paul, none of whom, in their entire lives, have known an America that wasn’t at war.
About Sgt. Dan McKnight:
