“We have a lot of obligations — to the old, to the young, to educate — but we have only one sacred obligation, and that is to equip those we send to war and care for those we bring home from war,” Vice President Joe Biden told the troops at the Wounded Warrior Battalion West, Camp Pendleton, California according to a report by the American Forces Press Service.
