Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Vista), a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, continued the Congressional Delegation mission (CODEL) in the Middle East by spending the day touring various locations throughout Kuwait, visiting with military service members and receiving updates on the fight against ISIS.

During the visit, he had lunch with Marines from Camp Pendleton, California who are in Kuwait supporting efforts in Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve, established and led by the U.S. with over 30 countries fighting together to defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria. All branches of the U.S. military support this international mission to increase regional stability.

Congressman Issa was briefed by key leaders from the U.S. Air Force, Army and Marine Corps on further military operations which continue to support and ensure success in the region.

Upon departing Kuwait for the next stop of the CODEL, Congressman Issa released the following statement:

"As the fight against ISIS, Al-Qaeda and other radical terror groups continues to evolve, having the opportunity to meet first-hand with our troops and key officials on the frontlines of these missions is absolutely crucial. It was such an honor to be able to thank the men and women in uniform who continue bravely serving our country in these volatile regions and to see the challenges they face in the fight to keep us safe. I thank everyone for the chance to share their experiences with me and I look forward to continuing to support our troops as they work to fight ISIS and defend our freedoms."
