|My Holiday Visit With Our Troops Abroad|
|Wednesday, December 31, 2008|
I recently returned from a trip to Afghanistan and Iraq where Governor David Paterson, Rep. Anthony Weiner and I had the opportunity to meet with members of the New York National Guard and other service members who are overseas. It was incredible to see firsthand how the situation in these two theaters has changed since my previous visits, and I hope we reminded our troops that everyone back home is thinking of them this holiday season. It’s vitally important that we continue to work together, at the state and federal level, to take care of our troops and their families all year round.
