Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Senator Lindsey Graham spent Thursday morning over at Fort Jackson visiting with soldiers and he even helped serve them lunch.
He says it's important to make sure the soldiers know they are appreciated especially during this time of year.
"It really is good for my morale to be around these young people," Graham said. "Many of them away from their home for the first time serving their country. I'm extremely proud of what they have done in Iraq and Afghanistan has been incredible. This is a dangerous world. And we have the best trained and best equipped military on the planet and I intend as a member of the Senate to keep it that way."
Graham is an Air Force reservist and serves on the Armed Services Committee.
