WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Jim Risch (R-Idaho) met with members of the Idaho National Guard who were deployed to Washington, D.C. to guard the United States Capitol and aid in the peaceful transition of power.
“The peaceful transition of power is part of what makes America the greatest civilization in history. As a former Commander in Chief of the Idaho National Guard, I’m humbled and thankful to all of you for your service.” Senator Risch told the assembled Guardsmen. “Thank you for being here, and God bless you.”
Senator Risch also met with members of the Idaho National Guard when they were deployed to the nation's capital last June.
