Camp Buehring, Kuwait – Congressman Trent Kelly (MS-01) led a bipartisan delegation to the Middle East where members served Thanksgiving Day lunch to service men and women who are stationed at Camp Buehring, Kuwait. More than 4,000 members of the 155th Armored Brigade Combat Team, Mississippi National Guard, deployed seven months ago in support of Operation Spartan Shield.
“It is difficult to be away from family and friends – especially duringthe holidays,” Rep. Kelly said. “It was an honor to spend time with our troops and to let them know that we are proud of their service and the sacrifices they and their families make to keep us safe.”
Members of the 155th are expected to return home in 2019.
Congressman Trent Kelly represents Mississippi’s First Congressional District. He serves on the House Armed Services Committee, the House Committee on Agriculture, and he is the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Investigations, Oversight, and Regulations. This is his second term.
