Lawmakers Return Home 

The Maine Democrat says he organized the trip to get a firsthand look at the quality of health care provided to U.S. military personnel in Iraq.

Three members of Michaud’s House veterans affairs health subcommittee participated, along with Veterans Affairs Secretary James Peake and two other congressmen. During the trip, the delegation met with Gen. David Petraeus and other U.S. officials.

The delegation arrived in Germany on Wednesday and was expected to return to the U.S. on Thursday. It was Michaud’s second visit to the region.
