McMorris to Visit Fairchild Troops Stationed in Iraq

(Washington, D.C.)  Congresswoman Cathy McMorris (WA-05) and Chief of Staff Connie Partoyan departed today on a military Congressional Delegation to Iraq. While in Iraq, McMorris will meet with Colonel Hanson and the troops from Fairchild’s 92nd Air Refueling Wing who are serving throughout Iraq.

“One of my top priorities is to ensure our national security and I look forward to being on the ground with our troops in order to get a first hand perspective of the War on Terror,” said McMorris. “I was at Fairchild Air Force Base in January when our troops were deployed. I am excited to see them again and to show my continued support. The troops will be reminded how proud everyone is of the job they are doing and of the importance of eliminating terrorist organizations in order to make the world a safer place.”

This is the first trip to Iraq for McMorris, who is a member of the House Armed Services Committee. While in Iraq, she will visit with troops and tour Iraqi training facilities. The delegation returns to the United States on Monday.
