Lankford Makes Secret Trip To Afghanistan

Congressman James Lankford's office disclosed today that he traveled to Afghanistan last weekend on an undisclosed trip as part of a six-member Congressional Delegation to meet with American civilian and military leadership, Afghan government officials and foreign allies.

The delegation visited several regions of the country to discuss the situation on the ground, the challenges facing our service men and women, reconstruction efforts and the progress of the Afghan National Army and Afghan Police. Lankford departed Washington, D.C., on Thursday, December 8 and returned on Monday, December 12.

To ensure the safety and security of the military and all members of the delegation, information pertaining to the trip was kept private until the trip’s completion. Lankford praised the dedication of American forces serving in Afghanistan.
