Barack Obama on Veterans benefits

Barack Obama answers a question from a Navy veteran in Anderson, Indiana on April 26, 2008.

He talks about improving the Veterans Administration including opening up more VA clinics. He also mentions his grandfather who fought in Patton's army and benefited from the GI Bill that allowed him to go to school while supporting a family. He notes that veteran educational benefits today do not cover college costs and that he is working on new GI Bill that will allow veterans to achieve a "world class education" while supporting a family.
