Dr. Chase Kohne decided to run for Congress for the same reason he became a veterinarian and joined the Army—a deep lifelong desire to serve others and help them thrive. His extensive background in the military, agriculture, medicine, and civil affairs makes him an effective and passionate advocate for providing affordable healthcare for all, achieving our renewable energy goals in Colorado and beyond, securing a great education for every American, growing opportunities for rural Coloradans to succeed, and bringing honesty and integrity to Washington.
Born in a small farming town and raised with the values of hard work and integrity, Chase’s rural upbringing inspired him to become a large animal veterinarian. He owns his own veterinary practice in Castle Rock and cares for horses, cows, and other animals on farms throughout the Fourth Congressional District.
Chase joined the Army to defend the American values of freedom, equality, and justice for all. He earned the Bronze Star for his service in Afghanistan, where he helped rural Afghans improve their agricultural products and resist the Taliban as well as working with local leaders to identify and provide community needs. As a veterinarian, he also helped Afghan villagers care for the sheep and goats they depend on.
He continues to serve our nation as a Major in the Army Reserve. His wife Amberlie, who is currently deployed overseas in support of our national security, is a registered nurse and a Captain in the Army Reserve. They are the proud parents of two daughters who inspire Chase every day to make Colorado and our nation a better place to live, learn, work, and visit.
As a proud veteran, veterinarian, small business owner, and father, Chase understands the issues Colorado families are facing and the values we share: leading with courage, honor, and integrity, protecting our Colorado way of life, standing up for our hard-won civil rights, and securing affordable healthcare, a quality education, and great opportunities for all Americans. Our future is worth fighting for, so send a warrior to Washington.
