My memory and quick review of debate shows Romney did not mention troops or vets once.

Other than denying Obama's claim that he wanted to increase military spending by 2 trillion above what the generals want, I don't think Romney once mentioned the service of our current troops or veterans. His concern about Libya just seems to be to gain political points by attacking security shortfalls and blaming them on the entire Obama administration or on whoever the charges might stick.

Obama suggested some troops and vets may be among the 47% that don't pay income taxes because of low income.

Did I miss something?

2. He only uses them as props.

Otherwise, he stays away from that topic.
