TROY, Ala. (WDHN) — President Biden is currently visiting the Lockheed Martin military weapons facility in Troy.

The President gave remarks right around 2 p.m. on the facility and its manufacturing of missiles that are being sent to aid Ukraine in the conflict with Russia.

The White House said in a statement that the President’s goal of his visit was to speak about the security assistance that the Biden-Harris Administration is providing Ukraine, and to highlight his request to Congress to pass funding quickly to help Ukraine continue to succeed against Russian aggression and to make sure the United States and our allies can replenish our own stocks of weapons to replace what we have sent to Ukraine.
