After Mitt Romney wrapped up his speech at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Convention in Reno on Tuesday, we had a chance to speak with some of the folks in the audience. Many we spoke with seemed to have nothing but positive things to say.
"I think he did very well," said Cherie Reid who won the VFW National Civilian Award. "I think it's so important, no matter who is president that we continue to support the military, no funding cuts or anything."
"President Obama is a great speaker," said Daniel Rowland who retired from the U.S. Army. "He really is good at it, but Governor Romney can speak to this congregation, this group of people and be able to deliver a speech we all could take something from."
"He just said some things that are so to our liking, especially cuts to military and those type of things," said Dan Crozker who retired from the U.S. Marine Corps. "It's the core of America; the military. So, it's something he said and we bought into it."
On Monday, we received a similar, positive response from veterans after President Obama's speech. As the polls suggest, this appears to be a very close race.
