President Obama has shown his commitment to veterans and military families since day one. From fulfilling his promise to end the war in Iraq, to improving the post-9/11 GI Bill, President Obama continues to fight for the best for our veterans.
In Wilmington yesterday, a local group of veterans and military families met to discuss how President Obama continues to fight for our veterans, and how Mitt Romney has failed in this commitment.
Leading this discussion were Sergeant Major (Ret.) John Estrada, the former highest-ranking enlisted member of the U.S. Marine Corps, and Lieutenant General (Ret.) Claudia Kennedy, the first female three-star general in the U.S. Army.
These two leaders are strong supporters of President Obama, and have seen his commitment to veterans and the military firsthand:
“The President has been a strong and responsible leader in complicated times. He is successfully confronting our enemies and strengthening our alliances while remaining true to the values that make our nation great.
“And now, as we come home from a decade of war, the President is honoring our service and sacrifices by keeping the sacred trust our leaders have with members of our nation’s military.” — Sergeant Major (Ret.) John Estrada
“You know I’m so proud to have supported President Obama in 2008 and to be doing so again this year. From the day he was inaugurated, in addition to all of the challenges he inherited, President Obama has made veterans’ issues and our military families a number one priority.
“As President Obama has worked to heal our economy and restore middle class security, he made putting our returning veterans to work a focus of his administration. He believes that no veteran who fought for our nation should have to fight for a job at home.” — Lieutenant General (Ret.) Claudia Kennedy
