Mitt Romney Praises All Things Military in Reno

Pays tribute to those who lost lives on 9/11


Under criticism for failing to mention the war in Afghanistan or recognize America's troops in his convention speech last month, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney repeatedly praised veterans, troops and civilian responders as he addressed a National Guard gathering here Tuesday.

Romney, in a 19-minute speech to the National Guard Association conference, paid tribute to those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, as well as to those who responded to what he called "evil and cowardly and heinous attacks."
