INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden plans to discuss the drawdown of U.S. troops in Iraq during an address to about 5,500 war veterans from across the country.

Biden is scheduled to be in Indianapolis on Monday to attend the national convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, which is the nation's oldest major veterans organization.

He's also expected to discuss the administration's support for troops in Iraq, Afghanistan and across the globe.
