WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Congressman Greg Pence (IN-06) announced today that he will serve on the Foreign Affairs Committee in the 116th Congress.

“It’s an honor to be selected to serve on the Foreign Affairs Committee,” Congressman Pence said. “I fought and served my country as a U.S. Marine, and I will continue my service to the people of Indiana’s 6th District.”

As a military veteran, Congressman Pence understands the importance of a responsible legislative agenda that enhances international engagement with allies and counters the aggressive policies of adversaries.

“The United States of America has been a global force for good for generations,” Congressman Pence said. “I look forward to working with my colleagues to do what’s best for our nation, and of course, for Hoosiers.”

The Committee is responsible for oversight and legislation relating to: foreign assistance; national security developments affecting foreign policy; strategic planning and agreements; war powers, treaties, executive agreements, and the deployment and use of United States Armed Forces.

“As a former officer in the United States Marine Corps, Congressman Greg Pence understands the importance of American leadership on the world stage,” ranking member, Congressman Michael McCaul (TX-10), said. “His dedication to putting our country first will be an asset to our Committee. He will be an important player on our team and I look forward to working with him to promote a foreign policy agenda that advances our national security and economic prosperity.”

Congressman Pence is a husband, grandfather, small businessman and veteran who will bring his Hoosier values to Washington, D.C. to help restore the American Dream. The Congressman and his wife Denise reside in Columbus, in the same house in which they raised their four children.
