U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan returned to Washington, D.C. in time for last week’s historic votes, after spending the weekend in Afghanistan with deployed members of the 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division of Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson, also known as the 4-25th and Alaska-based members of the Air Force.
Sullivan left DC last Friday evening, landed in Qatar, and then went on to Afghanistan. He was back in DC on Monday afternoon in time for Senate votes Monday evening and throughout the rest of the week.
Sullivan, who is a Marine Reserve lieutenant colonel, has been deployed during the holidays in years past. He joined the United States Marine Corps in 1993, leaving active duty in 1997, service in the Marine Corps Reserve since then. He was recalled to active duty from 2004 to 2006, in 2009 and again in 2013.
