Governor Bill Lee Issues Statement Concerning National Guard Return from Washington

Governor Bill Lee issued this Tweet on Friday in advance of Tennessee National Guard troops returning from Washington.

Many lawmakers have expressed displeasure, after troops guarding the inauguration ceremonies were forced to leave the Capitol Building to sleep in car garages.

Here is Governor Lee’s Tweet:

“It’s time to welcome our TN National Guard soldiers & airmen home today after their mission in DC. Very disappointed in the way this mission came to a close & the overall treatment of the National Guard in DC. Tennesseans are proud of our men and women in uniform.”
