Bush: I ‘Get Slightly Emotional’ Talking About Vets (VIDEO)

Former President George W. Bush teared up during an interview about veterans and post-traumatic stress disorder.

“I have a duty. I obviously get slightly emotional talking about our vets because I have an emotional — I’m in there with them,” he told ABC’s Martha Raddatz in a segment that aired Sunday on “This Week”. “But my spirit is always uplifted when I visit with vets.”

Bush, who is promoting his initiative to help returning war veterans adjust to civilian life, commended American veterans.

“They don’t say, ‘Woe is me,'” Bush said. “They say, ‘What can I do to continue to serve.'”
