Veterans Who've Actually Been to Iraq Are Meeting With Senators Today
I just got this press release from VoteVets.org. Let's see if the national media -- especially the TV talking heads who've never been to Iraq or served in a war for that matter -- will cover this:
VoteVets.org will be the first and only Iraq Veterans organization to hold multiple high-level meetings with Senators, regarding the escalation in Iraq, as it brings eight veterans of the war in Iraq to Capitol Hill today for meetings with Senators from both sides of the aisle. They will join with Sens. Patty Murray, Edward Kennedy, Sherrod Brown, and Bernie Sanders at 11am in 285 Russell Senate Office Building TODAY to address the press.
VoteVets.org is making the trip, as part of the coalition of groups known as Americans Against Escalation in Iraq. In addition to those at the press conference, VoteVets.org will be meeting with Sens. Sam Brownback, John Sununu, Barack Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Jon Tester, Claire McCaskill, and Bob Casey.
The full schedule of meetings and locations is below. Photographers and cameras are encouraged to attend both the press conference and meetings, for possible photo ops.
