InfoABOUT TOMMY

Tommy Sowers is running for Congress in Missouri’s Eighth District. Born and raised in the district, Tommy spent 11 years in the U.S. Army, as a Ranger, Green Beret and West Point professor.


SOUTHEASTERN MISSOURI UPBRINGING

Tommy was born in Rolla, Missouri where he has deep family roots. His grandfather started the local paper in 1942. Raised with a deep sense of faith and the values of small communities, he was taught to serve others and work hard. Today, Tommy lives two doors down from his parents.


ARMY EDUCATION

Tommy attended Rolla public schools and earned an Army ROTC Scholarship to Duke University. Later in his career, he won a Rotary Scholarship to study at the London School of Economics, where he graduated with a mark of distinction awarded to the top three graduates. He is currently completing his PhD in Government.

After two tours in Iraq, Tommy returned to teach at West Point, where he taught classes in American Politics and Mass Media and Politics. At West Point, he was nominated for an APGAR Award for excellence in teaching.

Throughout his entire education – as a student and teacher – the Army equipped Tommy with the tools to be the leader he is today.


FIGHTING FOR US, ABROAD

Tommy was commissioned into the Army’s Corps of Engineers in May of 1998. Assigned to the 1st Infantry Division, Tommy deployed to Kosovo where he led a platoon of Combat Engineers. He later attended Army Special Forces Training, where he graduated first in his class of Green Berets.

From 2004-2006, Tommy deployed to Iraq, where he commanded a group of Green Berets in a wide range of counterinsurgency operations. Tommy carried a steel-encased Bible with him, as a reminder of his faith and of his home. Tommy was awarded the Combat Infantryman’s Badge, and two Bronze Stars. After eleven years of service to our nation, in 2009 Tommy left the Army and returned home.


FIGHTING FOR US, AT HOME

Tommy has always felt a sense of duty to serve the people that he grew up with in any way that he can. He has served as a citizen, a student, a soldier and a teacher.

After watching Southeastern Missouri struggle for the last fifteen years, Tommy is determined to take action and fight for his home. For the last year, Tommy has been traveling around the district, listening to voters and working hand in hand with the people of Southeast Missouri. In Congress, Tommy is committed to fighting for your interests, and bringing back jobs and prosperity to the district.
