Biden salutes troops as 'spine of America' on Veterans Day

 

November 12, 2021



WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden saluted the nation's military veterans as "the spine of America" on Thursday as he marked his first Veterans Day as president in a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.

"There's nothing low risk or low cost about war for the women and men who fight it," said Biden, whose administration earlier in the day announced a federal effort to better understand, identify and treat medical conditions suffered by troops deployed to toxic environments.

That expanded effort centers on lung problems suffered by troops who breathe in toxins and the potential connection between rare cancers and time spent overseas breathing poor air, according to the White House. Federal officials plan to start by examining lung and breathing problems but say they will expand the effort as science identifies potential new connections.
