KAJ18: Senator Jon Tester says Iraq decision will strengthen U.S.

U.S. Senator Jon Tester released the following statement in response to the President’s announcement to remove all U.S. Operation New Dawn troops from Iraq by year’s end as originally planned:

Sharla and I will always be grateful for their service and sacrifice.”
