A round-table discussion on national security and veteran's benefits was held Friday in Jacksonville by Veterans supporting Presidential Hopeful Barack Obama.

Medal of honor winner Paul Buuka has been traveling around North Carolina making his case for why the Illinois Senator should be the next President.

He focused on national security and Veteran's affairs. Buuka says he's currently in counseling for post traumatic stress disorder, and that Marines today are back and forth between countries very often and need help more than ever before. Many in attendance agree Obama will look out for military men and women when they come back to America, no matter how long they served.

Buuka made another stop in our state Friday traveling to Fayetteville to speak.

    I believe that Sen. Obama is not and will ever support the military or its veterans, he showed his allegiance (or lack there of) when he went to see the forward depolyed troups. He did not see the troups. He only had photo op,s with them, if the cameras were not there his would not associate anyone lower than the rank of Col. He also would not visit the wounded in the hospital only because they did not allow camera coverage in the hospital. This shows a complete lack of support for the military. His complete lack of experence in the military field, and Congress (one term as a Senator and not accomplishing during that term) renders him incapable of being an effective Commander in Chief of the US Armed Forces and President of the United States of America. Semper Fi.
