President Obama Vows to Fight for Veteran’s Programs

In a speech to the American Legion’s 93rd National Convention in Minneapolis, President Obama informed attendees that he’ll fight to maintain funding for Veteran’s health and welfare programs during the process to control the federal budget deficit.

President Obama said that “We cannot, and we must not, balance the budget on the backs of our veterans.” Obama, who will attend ceremonies this year in New York, Pennsylvania andWashington for the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, said the nation must honor, along with the victims, the sacrifices of those who went to war after the terrorists struck.
