OBAMA'S NATIONAL VETERANS DIRECTOR PHIL CARTER MEETS WITH A DOZEN SPRINGFIELD VETS, MOST WHO ARE ALREADY SUPPORTING THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE

MCCAIN CAMP RESPONDS, through State Representative Jason Brown and Joe Frank: "He has been a tireless advocate for our troops who are currently serving, as well as all the soldiers from different generations who have returned to civilian life.
