My visits with U.S. troops overseas

I just returned from a trip overseas for the House Intelligence Committee, having met with government, military, and intelligence officials in various countries. I also had the opportunity to meet with U.S. troops stationed abroad, whose patriotism and high morale are deeply inspiring. The trip included visits with the Army's 2nd Battalion, 5th Cavalry and the Marine Corps Black Sea Rotational Force at the Mihail Kogalniceanu (MK) Air Base in Romania, a key logistical hub for U.S. forces in the Black Sea region. I also went to the country of Georgia to observe Noble Partner 2018, a multinational military exercise led by the U.S. and Georgian militaries. Pictures of those visits are below.
