Obama Says Troops Need Better Services

Littleton, NH (AP) -- Presidential hopeful Barack Obama says it's not a holiday that should be politicized, but he's marking Memorial Day with a renewed call for better services for veterans.

He laid a wreath at a war monument in New Hampshire before heading to a town hall-style meeting.

Obama said improvements are needed at every stage of military service: recruitment, deployment and re-entry into civilian life.

The Illinois Senator, known for his opposition to the Iraq war, said he supports the troops, just not their mission.
