Operation Iraqi Freedom

SATHER AIR BASE, Iraq - Alabama Congressman Bobby Bright, left, talks with Col. Jon Andre, 447th Air Expeditionary Group commander, Feb. 15 just after arriving on the flightline here as part of a six-person team of Congress members on a tour of the Middle East. The congressional team, led by Maine Congresswoman Chellie Pingree, visited Afghanistan, Bahrain, Kuwait and Iraq and met with U.S. servicemembers and military commanders, and Iraqi and Afghan officials during a six-day trip. Colonel Andre made it a point to meet Congressman Bright because the colonel served as the 908th Airlift Wing vice commander at Maxwell Air Force Base, Ala., from July 2006 to Nov. 2008, during which time the Congressman was mayor of Montgomery, Ala.
