American Legion Wraps Up National Convention in Milwaukee

by

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - The American Legion will wrap up its national convention Thursday in Milwaukee.

Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked the Legionnaires to help the nation work together to make sure veterans have jobs when they come home from Iraq and Afghanistan.

She said, “We promise them a future worthy of their sacrifice.” Pelosi said the current Congress approved a number of measures important to veterans.

They included a beefed-up GI Bill, more funding for the Veterans Administration, more tax breaks for disabled vets, and more help for veterans affected by Agent Orange.

But Pelosi said more needs to be done, like caring for homeless veterans, ending the so-called “widows’ tax,” and more treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder.
