Virginia Beach Naval Veteran: “President Obama is the first Democratic president I will vote for"

Tyre Nelson is a veteran and will be voting for President Barack Obama on November 6th.

After serving 20 years in the United States Navy, his experience has been a reminder of what’s truly at stake in this election for service members like him.

“If Governor Romney were to become President, I feel we would go back to where we were four years ago -- where the administration looks at the military as buying more tanks, buying more battleships, and buying more airplanes. They do not look at the people. They do not look at the kids coming home from wars with shattered legs, with traumatic brain injuries. I think President Obama and Vice President Biden both understand that distinctly.”

Watch the video and keep Virginia moving forward:
