U.S. Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming joined President Donald Trump on Thanksgiving in a surprise visit to American troops stationed at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan.

The base includes members of Wyoming National Guard's A Battery, 2nd Battalion, 300th Field Artillery, who are conducting artillery missions in Afghanistan.

In a news release issued by the Senator’s office, Barrasso said that he was incredibly proud to introduce the President to Guard members who are stationed at Bagram Air Base, adding that they're part of the largest overseas deployment of Wyoming soldiers in a decade and are doing an outstanding job.

Senator Barrasso and President Trump met with service members, served Thanksgiving dinner, and were briefed by military officials about ongoing operations in the Middle East. There are approximately 370 Wyoming National Guard soldiers deployed in the Middle East and Europe. This makes it one of the largest deployments of Wyoming National Guard soldiers since 2009.
