Washington, D.C. – Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1), member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, is currently traveling with a bipartisan Congressional Delegation (CODEL) to the Middle East, including Afghanistan. This is the second consecutive year that Congressman Zeldin is in the Middle East visiting deployed service members during the holidays:
Congressman Zeldin said, “It is an honor to visit our troops deployed overseas in the Middle East during the holiday season. Throughout this trip, I have had the privilege to thank many of our heroes, several from New York, risking their lives away from their families in defense of our freedoms and liberties. My meetings with top military and diplomatic leadership front and center in the fight against ISIS, Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups are also a critical component of this timely visit to the Middle East.”
Also participating in the bipartisan CODEL are Congressman Mike Coffman (R, CO-6), Congressman David Valadao (R, CA-21) and Congressman David Cicilline (D, RI-1).
