We now know a San Antonio Congressman was in Afghanistan at the same time as Presdient Barack Obama on Memorial Day.
The Democrat told 550 KTSA News he feels the President's recent efforts to wind down the war there are a step in the right direction.
"There looks like--with the Afghan elections--a full transition between one democratically elected president to another for the first time in Afghan history" Gallego said, adding the ground tropps he ran in to while in ASfghanistan remain focused on their mission in that country.
"The morale was great among the American troops. Obviously, they're very excited about coming home--but what was striking to me is they also firmly believe in our mission. They have not forgotten about September 11th" Gallego said.
