Governor Jim Douglas is visiting Vermont troops today in Afghanistan.

The governor will spend the night in the Afghan capital of Kabul and will meet with Vermont troops there tomorrow for breakfast.

Yesterday, the governor spent several hours in Iraq, including two hours on the ground in Ramadi, the city west of Baghdad where six Vermonters have been killed since August.

The governor left the United States on Sunday. For security reasons the trip was not announced before he left. He is due home on Friday.

Douglas is traveling with governors from Tennessee, Virginia and Nevada.
