Controversies

Military service

During his 2012 campaign, as well as previous campaigns, Flygare stated that he served two tours of duty in Vietnam. In September 2012, after questions were raised, he said that he actually only served one year long tour in the war and did not mean to misrepresent his military career. “It’s like a brain fart. I don’t know why I keep saying two tours in Vietnam,” he said.[4]

Personal

Flygare has a wife, Karla, and one child, Ehren.[5]
