Obama Pays Tribute to War Survivors on Veterans Day

As the entire country commemorates the people who have served in armed service on Veterans Day, U.S. President Barack Obama likewise paid tribute to their patriotism by honoring them in a speech.

After offering wreaths at the tomb of the veterans who have given their lives defending the country, Obama addressed his remarks to the surviving veterans who were present at the event held at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia to celebrate Veterans Day.

“This is the life of one American veteran — living proud and strong in the land he helped keep free,” said the commander the chief, Pres. Obama.

“We will never forget those who fought, bled and died for their country, even as the nation moves past wars in Iraq and Afghanistan,” Obama added.

Obama also guaranteed the veterans that he will keep going just to make sure that his administration is providing unprecedented support to the heroes of the nation. In fact, he proudly announced that his current administration has already reduced the backlogs of disability benefit claims at the Department of Veterans Affairs by a third since March

Furthermore, Obama assured young veterans that even though the time of war is coming soon to an end, the administration’s time of service will still resume.

Unfortunately, a veteran’s service on the war zone was not always equaled by the respect that he deserves at home.

While Obama was giving a standing ovation to the veterans, the latter acknowledge his tribute and were pretty overjoyed about his remarks.

In Los Angeles, wherein obtaining and facilitating the release of a disability claim is never easy, a social security disability firm suggests that it is a wise move to have someone to provide them with legal assistance, and represent them in various review hearings and appeals regarding their disability benefit claim to obtain much needed advantages in winning disability claim.
