Cindy and vets hold morning press conference

At this mornings's press conference, Cindy, military families and veterans, including National Guardsmen, sent condolences to the men and women of Louisiana who are facing Hurricane Katrina. Cindy called for all remaining Camp Casey materials to be sent to the disaster site, and veteran called on fellow vets in Louisiana to help with disaster relief. More information about the coming bus tour was announced.

Paralyzed Iraq veteran Tomas Young called on President Bush to meet with him to explain why his best hope to walk again, stem cell research, was not being pursued. Tomas was wounded in Iraq the same day that Casey Sheehan was killed.
