Washington, DC-Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12) issued the following statement regarding the four members of the Texas Army National Guard who were injured this week in an IED attack in the Sinai:

“I would like to extend my thoughts and prayers to all of the Texas Army National Guard soldiers of the 1-112th Cavalry Squadron, especially the four Soldiers recently injured in an IED attack in the Sinai. 

“The National Guard is vitally important to our security both at home and overseas.  They protect our nation and borders, respond to our communities and serve as citizen-soldiers, working throughout every state.

“These Guardsmen, along with those in France that prevented a terrorist attack, have again highlighted the tremendous value and importance of the National Guard. 

“We stand ready to welcome these warriors of the 1-112th Cavalry home, where they will continue to serve in our communities and rise to the Texas Guard motto, ‘Texans serving Texas.’"
