Romney Spoke Before American Legion Conference

Democrats have criticized Mitt Romney for not mentioning those who serve in the military during his GOP convention speech, but Romney campaign adviser Eric Fehrnstrom points-out that the Republican candidate for president addressed the American Legion conference in Indianapolis just the day before. “Governor Romney thought it was a privilege to be speaking to people who had served so nobly” Fehrnstrom said.

Romney didn’t mention that he himself avoided the draft for the Vietnam conflict, securing deferments that allowed him to take part in a Mormon “mission” to France. Which he later lied about. But he was “overseas”.
