Please let me draw you attention to the Veterans for Obama on the national
Obama for America homepage.
Leading up to the early state primarys, Veterans for Obama worked very closely with senior Obama staff to help them see, more clearly, policy from the perspective of those that have served. Efforts were made by new media staff to honestly capture those candid perspectives. What has been created with care and respect will now find its way to the national page for all to see, learn and share.
Below, I have provided a small sample.
As the Massachusetts primary rushes upon us, local veterans that support Obama will be reaching out to their Bay State peers.
I have been working closely with members of Veterans for Kerry. The phrase may popular these days, but vets have always known that:

Welcome to Veterans for Obama
This is the online home for Veterans and those who care about how our country handles veterans issues. If you believe as we do that Barack Obama is kind of leader our nation needs to achieve the change we want, get involved with us and start working for change.
Honoring Our Veterans: “Leave No One Behind”

Guiding our Heroes–Tom Brown’s Story
By Eddie Lee, NH Obama Staff – Sep 16th, 2007 at 9:21 pm EDT
Tom Brown answered the call of duty by joining the Air Force in the years before the Vietnam War. He served as an alcohol and drug counselor for most of his career, helping his comrades cope with substance abuse.
His commitment to his fellow soldiers leads him to believe that our political leaders have no greater responsibility than keeping faith with the heroes who serve.
This is his story.
