“I want to congratulate the defense workers in our community on a job well done,” said Congresswoman Granger. “Today we celebrate a major victory in Iraq and in the War on Terror, a victory that is a direct result of the work you do. I always say that we have the best workforce in the world. Today, you made America proud.”
