Since day one, President Obama has made it a priority to keep the sacred trust we hold with those who wear the uniform of the United States and their families. President Obama has proven to be a strong and steady Commander-in-Chief, with a clear vision to protect us both here at home and Americans abroad. Recently, former Secretary of State and four-star Army General Colin Powell also shared why he too supports President Obama for reelection.
To Wisconsin veterans returning home from all over the world, it's clear that the President has put the needs of veterans and their families first.
"I am so proud to stand with Veterans for Obama and to give my support for our President and Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama. He has fought to expand and improve benefits for veterans and their families – including health care, higher education, and the job opportunities veterans deserve when they return home. He has also fulfilled his promise to safely and responsibly bring our troops home from Iraq." - Bryan of Ripon, Marines
"I believe in President Obama. We are on a journey with Barack Obama to transform this nation into the 21st century powerhouse it is meant to be." - Richard of Milwaukee, Air Force
"Barack Obama is carefully winding down our engagements in Iraq and Afghanistan and has a reasonable plan to get other threats to our national security like our deficit under control in the future." - Al of Sun Prairie, Marines
"When President Obama campaigned in 2008, he said he'd bring the Iraq War to a responsible end, and he did. He kept his word. In a political climate where candidates promise a lot of things, he is a politician who made the hard choices and fought for what was right. He ended the war in Iraq. He ended Don't Ask, Don't Tell. I have so much respect for Barack Obama because of that. I was a committee member for Veterans for Obama in '08 and I'm supporting him again." - Manitowoc veteran and County Clerk Jamie Aulik
