Congresswoman Stefanik with servicemen in Afghanistan.

This weekend Congresswoman Stefanik returned from a bipartisan Congressional Delegation visit to Afghanistan and the Middle East. As the Chair of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities, this was an important opportunity for the Congressional delegation to conduct oversight of the policy, strategy, and resource issues associated with Operation Inherent Resolve in Iraq/Syria and Operation Resolute Support in Afghanistan.

Among the briefings and meetings, the delegation met with the Commander of all U.S. Special Operations Forces in Iraq and Syria for full updates on current and future operations to counter ISIS, including partnering engagements and operations with the units from the Iraqi Army and the Syrian Democratic Forces.

This trip was also a special opportunity to visit with the brave men and women in uniform deployed in this region. Congresswoman Stefanik had the opportunity to visit many constituents from our district, including servicemen and women from Greenwich, Plattsburgh, Star Lake, Schuylerville, Turin, Saranac Lake, Saratoga, Wilton, Cambridge, South Glens Falls, Lake George and Massena.
