OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin announced Monday that she is traveling to the Middle East to visit with American troops.
In a news release, Gov. Fallin said she is looking forward to spending time with the troops.
“I am always impressed and inspired by our men and women in uniform. The risks they take and the sacrifices they make are unfathomable to most of us. Yet they remain committed to the mission command, and motivated to fight for our nation’s freedom.
“My deepest gratitude to their families and loved ones for their sacrifices, and to the businesses for whom these National Guard members work. Your support and encouragement is critical to both the success of this mission and these men and women.
“It will be wonderful to spend some time with these brave men and women in the coming days.”
