Navy SEAL veteran and GOP Senate candidate Tim Sheehy's campaign just released a powerful new video from a fellow Montana Navy SEAL veteran.

Bo Reichenbach is a Navy SEAL from Billings, Montana who lost both of his legs following an IED attack in Afghanistan back in the summer of 2012. Here's a report from the Billings Gazette about a month after the attack occurred, as Bo was recovering at Walter Reed.

I remember when Bo was wounded, as my fellow American Legion friend George Blackard called me shortly after the attack happened. If I remember right, I was in Airborne School in Fort Benning, GA at the time, shortly after I had gotten home from my 3rd deployment overseas.

A few weeks ago, I attended a meet and great with Navy SEAL veteran and US Senate candidate Tim Sheehy at the VFW in the Billings Heights. While I had first gotten to know Sheehy several years ago, I appreciate seeing how candidates interact and connect with voters during in person meet and greet events.

I forgot who I was talking to, but they told me that before that event that Sheehy was meeting with Bo Reichenbach because they had served together in Afghanistan. In fact, Sheehy was there when Bo was wounded. Wow.

Here's the video of the ad where Bo says "Tim Sheehy is exactly who we need in the Senate."


Tim Sheehy led our unit in Afghanistan. That's why I'm alive today. When the IED went off, they didn't think I'd survive. Tim ran straight into danger to protect others, earning the Bronze Star and a Purple Heart. Tim doesn't just talk about honor and sacrifice, he lives it. Trust me, Tim Sheehy is exactly who we need in the Senate.
