Sen. Reed heading to Iraq today
U.S. Sen. Jack Reed will travel to Iraq today for his 11th visit there since 2003, his office announced.
The Rhode Island Democrat, a West Point graduate and Armed Services Committee senior member, is slated to meet with American commanders and Rhode Island soldiers serving there before returning to the United State on Jan. 19.
The U.S. military last week launched Operation Phantom Phoenix, an offensive aimed at "cracking down on al Qaeda-aligned terrorists and other insurgents in Iraq," Reed's office said.
Reed served in the 82nd Airborne Division as an infantry platoon leader.
