Obama vows to honor U.S. veterans' service long after wars end
Christi ParsonsWASHINGTON -- President Obama pledged Monday to honor the nation’s debt to its military veterans by improving healthcare, job support and educational opportunities for those who have served.
In his annual Veterans Day address at Arlington National Cemetery, Obama declared that the war in Afghanistan is coming to a close but vowed that the commitment of the U.S. government to the men and women in uniform will continue.
“Even as we make difficult fiscal choices as a nation, we’re going to keep making vital investments in our veterans,” Obama told a group of veterans, joined by their friends and family members. “That’s our promise to you and all who have served -- to be there, to support you when you come home, every step of the way.”
