Carter, Williams Return from Visiting Ft. Hood Troops Overseas

(WASHINGTON, DC) – U.S. Representatives John Carter (TX-31) and Roger Williams (TX-25) returned yesterday evening from a weeklong visit to Iraq and Kuwait. The trip consisted of meetings with American servicemen and women, including III Corps Soldiers from Ft. Hood, and meetings with U.S. officials, and government leaders. 

“For the last week, I’ve had the opportunity to visit with III Corps Soldiers leading the coalition fight against ISIS, and to say I’m extremely proud and immensely grateful for these Soldiers would be an understatement,”   Congressman Carter said. “Witnessing firsthand their determination to defeat the enemy makes me confident that there is no greater bravery than that epitomized by our men and women that wear the uniform. It was my honor to have the opportunity to spend a short time with our Ft. Hood Soldiers overseas, and I look forward to working with my colleagues on the Appropriations Committee to continue ensuring that these Soldiers have the resources they need to be successful on and off the battlefield.” 

“It was a great honor to be with our brave service members and diplomats in Iraq and Kuwait. I had the opportunity to meet with troops from all over Texas and the U.S., including our III Corps Phantom Warriors from Fort Hood,” said Rep. Williams. “After spending a week with our military men and women, I am more confident than ever that we will win the fight to ensure lasting peace in the region, while also defending American interests abroad. I appreciate the Departments of Defense and State for allowing me the privilege to visit their headquarters in Iraq and Kuwait, and I will continue to work hard in Washington on behalf of our patriots serving overseas.”

Rep. Carter represents Texas District 31, which includes Fort Hood, the largest active duty armored military installation in the free world. He serves as Chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Appropriations, co-chairman of the Congressional Army Caucus, is on the Subcommittee for Commerce, Justice and Science and the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee.
