Veterans Day with the Troops

This Veterans Day, Congressman Gene Green is visiting with injured soldiers at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany, the health facility where many soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan are taken to receive care.  This visit was part of a Congressional Delegation (CODEL) trip to the Middle East with four other Members of Congress. 

“It was an honor to be with our troops and spend time with them this Veterans Day.  Sitting down and talking to them, you get to know these brave young men and women personally and it becomes clear that we have the best military because of these truly exceptional individuals.  I cannot thank them enough for their service.” 

The group traveled to Afghanistan, Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates, and Iraq to meet with American troops and U.S. military and foreign officials to discuss the status of national security issues and soldier needs abroad. 

Texas has almost 26,200 troops deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan.  This constitutes approximately 13% of all soldiers stationed abroad on these missions, more than any other state.
