Times-Republican: Beau Biden makes stop at Iowa Veterans Home
Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden said his stop at the Iowa Veterans Home Thursday was more about thanking vets than campaigning.
“The sacrifice you make and your families make is really what this county is all about,” he said.
Biden, son of Vice President Joe Biden, lauded President Obama’s efforts as commander in chief saying the president understands when and where deploying troops is appropriate.
Obama’s efforts, he said to a crowd of about 50, helped end the war in Iraq in a responsible way and made a significant dent in the war on terror.
“He refocused our effort overseas to get al-Qaida,” he said.
He pointed to the president’s effort to expand the GI Bill and veterans benefits as well provide businesses tax credits for hiring veterans as evidence that Obama understands, what he called, the sacred obligation of being commander in chief.
