Madison, WI — U.S. Representative Mark Pocan (WI-02) issued the following statement prior to his inspection of Fort McCoy, an Army installation in Monroe County, Wisconsin housing more than 7,000 Afghan refugees who were recently evacuated from Afghanistan.

 “Many of these Afghans and their families at Fort McCoy put their lives on the line for American troops during the war. We owe it to them to ensure they are well equipped to become parts of our community. I’m looking forward to hearing from military personnel firsthand and meeting with Afghan refugees to see how they are settling into the United States.”
