CONCORD — New Hampshire Congresswoman Annie Kuster has returned from a trip with other House members to Afghanistan and Kuwait, which included spending Thanksgiving with U.S. troops.

Kuster, a Democrat and member of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, was one of six representatives receiving in-country updates on security, political transitions, and counter-terrorism initiatives.

Her six-day trip included briefings from senior military officials in both countries, as well as updates from the U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan P. Michael McKinley and the chief executive of Afghanistan, Dr. Abdullah Abdullah. The delegation also met with members of the armed forces serving at Bagram Airfield, Camp Integrity, and Camp Arifjan.

Kuster said she was honored to spend Thanksgiving with U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
