WASHINGTON – Congressman Tim Burchett (TN-02) released the following statement after Iran fired multiple missiles at facilities housing U.S. troops in Iraq:
 
“I am monitoring the situation in Iraq and praying for our brave military personnel stationed there. Now more than ever, our soldiers in the Middle East need to know America has their backs. Like many Americans and Members of Congress, I do not want another war in the Middle East, but Iran needs to know we will defend our troops, personnel and facilities at home and overseas in the face of any aggression. Iran’s decision to continue attacking Americans is the wrong one.”
