“I am so thankful for our men and women in uniform, and the many selfless sacrifices they make in service to our nation while away from their loved ones,” said Allred. “It was truly an honor to travel with my Veterans’ Affairs Committee colleagues to thank our service members in person, to hear their stories of service and to share a Thanksgiving meal. Our nation owes these individuals a debt of gratitude, and I will always work to keep our promise to all our veterans and active duty members of the armed forces.”

Allred was joined on the trip by House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs Chairman Mark Takano (CA-41), Reps. Connor Lamb (PA-17), Haley Stevens (MI-11), and Lauren Underwood (IL-14).
