The Huffington Post features a blog by Tyre Nelson, veteran of the United States Navy, and lifetime Republican. This year will be the first time in his life he will vote for a Democratic president. Tyre Nelson’s endorsement for President Obama comes from a place near and dear to his heart:
“No administration has done more for military families and service members, from ending one war and winding down another, to ensuring returning veterans have the resources they need to get jobs and health care and encouraging the private sector to provide jobs to military spouses.”
"When we sign our name on the dotted line, we are serving our country. And when we check the box on our ballot for President Obama, we move our country forward and ensure a secure future for our service men and women, and our veterans. I encourage all American's who support our military and veterans to do the same."
President Obama has made veterans a priority of his administration and his plan is clear. He will serve those who have served their nation because he honors that service.
