Donald Trump, the Republican vice presidential nominee, and Mike Pence, the Democratic vice presidential candidate, will address troops in Nevada this week, according to two administration officials familiar with the plans.
The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the plans publicly.
Trump and Pence are scheduled to hold their first joint press conference Thursday morning.
The two candidates have been in frequent contact since last summer, when Trump visited the Marine Corps Recruiting Command in Quantico, Va., where he met with veterans.
At the time, the candidates discussed the state of the armed forces.
Pence and Trump are both members of the Armed Services Committee.
Pence is an Air Force veteran and the son of former vice president Dick Cheney, and Trump is a decorated Navy officer and former Indiana governor.
Pence has said he will support Trump’s proposal to build a wall along the Mexican border and for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration into the U.M.
Laredo is home to nearly 8,000 U.s. military veterans, according a recent estimate by the Defense Department.
