U.S. Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming shared Thanksgiving dinner with Wyoming National Guard airmen serving in the Arab country of Qatar. The Republican senator visited with members of the 187th Airlift Squadron, who support airlift operations out of Al Udeid Air Base.

He said it was an honor to share the holiday with the airmen, that numbered about 100, to have the opportunity to talk about home. He said they talked about their families, the weather and Cowboy football. He said he made sure they knew how proud the folks back home are of their service.

During the visit, Barrasso served Thanksgiving dinner to the service members, toured the 187th facilities, and was briefed by military officials about the operations in the Middle East.
