Sen. Barrasso with Wyo National Guard Troops Serving in Qatar

QATAR – On Thanksgiving day, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) shared dinner with Wyoming National Guard troops serving in Qatar. Barrasso sat down with members of the 153rd Airlift Wing and 187th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron, who are supporting airlift operations and medical evacuations in the Middle East.

“Spending Thanksgiving with Wyoming troops serving overseas is a tradition I look forward to every year,” said Barrasso. “Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on the people and things we’re most thankful for. So much of our gratitude goes to the brave Wyoming men and women serving our country overseas. This year the holidays will look quite a bit different for most Americans. This is especially true for the members of the Wyoming Air National Guard deployed in Qatar. Despite the unique challenges this year brings, they continue to do a remarkable job keeping America and our allies safe. It was wonderful to share a meal with them and bring a little bit of home to them this holiday season.”
