U.S. Senator John Barrasso spent the 4th of July weekend visiting with Wyoming National Guard troops serving in Bahrain, several of them from Sheridan. The Senator spent part of his holiday weekend with members of the 133rd Engineering Company, a unit based out of Laramie, that is stationed at Isa Air Base in Bahrain.
Barrasso said in a media release that “it's an honor and a privilege to visit with and thank Wyoming troops serving overseas. We can all be proud of the remarkable work the 133rd is doing to defend our freedom.”
The 133rd is responsible for all of the security on the air base. There are currently over 160 Wyoming Army National Guard soldiers deployed in Bahrain. The 133rd was deployed to Bahrain in May for a nine month deployment.
