VFW convention attendees remark on Iraq crisis

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The Department of Kentucky Veterans of Foreign Wars is holding their annual state convention in Louisville.

Veterans at the event have lots to say about the crisis in Iraq. "We put great sacrifice in that country and it's tough to say let's go back and do it again, you know, we need to think about what we need to do and how we need to do it and our resources as far as manpower and losing people over there again," said veteran Karle Johnson. "But again, we can't let the country go away again either. We made great sacrifices to free that country."

The convention continues through Sunday, June 15 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
