Veterans Day

Today President George W. Bush signed the historic Fallen Patriots Tax Relief Act. Which doubles the tax-free death gratuity payment given to the families of fallen soldiers from $6,000 to $12,000; and the National Cemetery Expansion Act to help establish new national cemeteries for deceased veterans.

"This nation has always gone to war reluctantly," Bush said in a speech at a coliseum draped in flags at Arlington National Cemetery.
