Benishek Applauds President On Return of American Troops From Iraq
WASHINGTON, DC: Congressman Dan Benishek (MI-01) today released the following statement:
“I applaud President Obama for his remarks at Fort Bragg today marking the end of the war in Iraq. I am confident that our men and women in uniform will come home to a grateful nation.
Over the past decade, our soldiers in Iraq have made incredible sacrifices while serving the cause of freedom and working to build a better world for people they have never even met.
Every poll I’ve seen indicates a large majority of the American people believe this conflict has run its course, so I believe it is fitting for American involvement in Iraq to come to a close.
In welcoming home our troops, I am pleased to join the President in his commitment to improve veteran services for our returning servicemen.”
