Both his speeches focused on military issues as he was joined with a number of retired veterans, including retired U.S. Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell, author of the book “Lone Survivor,” his twin brother Morgan and author Brad Thor. Perry pledged to work for veterans “until I take my last breath” promising to reform the Department of Veteran affairs if elected president.

Prior to his speeches, Perry took time to talk to individuals especially veterans while taking pictures and signing ‘Perry for President’ poster. During his speech, he gave a big shout out thank you to all the Veterans he served.

“If you elect me your president, there will be an individual that goes to the Oval Office every day, committed to the military and to the veterans of this country,” Perry said.

Making this his promise that he will live up to, Perry said “It won’t be an afterthought. It will be every day walking in that Oval Office, asking the chief of staff if we’re getting the VA straightened up, if we’re getting the work done for these veterans, men and women who held their hand up and said, here I am, send me.”

Perry also discussed economic issues, discussing energy as a source to build the economy and help create jobs.
