U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Aurora, spent the Thanksgiving holiday with U.S. troops stationed at Camp Humphreys, South Korea.
“I am honored to be spending Thanksgiving with our troops,” said Coffman, a Marine Corps combat veteran. “Having served, I understand how hard it is to be away from loved ones, especially during the holidays, so for me it’s important to thank them and their families for their service and sacrifice.”
In addition to his stop at Camp Humphreys, Coffman spent time with Colorado service members stationed at Osan Air Base.
Coffman, who chairs the House Subcommittee on Military Personnel, as part of the House Armed Services Committee, is leading a bipartisan congressional delegation to South Korea and Japan to meet with service members and leadership.
Site visits included a stop at the Korean Demilitarized Military Zone, where recent news events have heightened tensions in the region and increased U.S. diplomatic pressure on North Korea.
