Former U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Bob Dole joined with Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) today to officially unveil "Veterans for Santorum," a coalition of Veterans from across Pennsylvania dedicated to keeping Senator Santorum's strong leadership on Veterans' issues in the Senate. Senator Dole, a decorated war hero, served our nation in World War II.

"It is a great honor and privilege to stand here with my former colleague Senator Bob Dole. Bob Dole embodies what is great about our nation -- dedication to faith, family and service. As we unveil our statewide Veterans coalition, I am thrilled to have Senator Dole as our honorary chairman," said Senator Santorum. "I have the utmost respect for men and women in uniform and will continue working in the Senate to ensure that our Veterans and current service members have the resources they need. There is no greater sacrifice than service to your country, and I am grateful for Senator Dole's service and the service of so many brave men and women in Pennsylvania and across the nation."

"I am pleased to help Senator Santorum in this effort. Rick Santorum has been a champion on Veterans' issues since his days in the House, and I am proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with him and work to ensure his reelection." said former Senator Bob Dole, a recipient of two Purple Hearts for injuries he received in World War II, and a Bronze Star Medal recipient for his attempt to assist an injured man. "One of the reasons why I am most supportive of Rick is because of his steadfast support of our men and women serving now. Our nation is at war, and there are young men and women from across our country fighting tirelessly for the freedoms we enjoy. And Rick Santorum has worked to ensure that our Armed Forces have the resources and equipment so they may continue protecting us."

This first phase of individuals, who are serving as the leadership team for "Veterans for Santorum" will work at the grassroots level to educate their friends and neighbors about Senator Santorum's record on Veterans' issues. In the weeks ahead, additional members of "Veterans for Santorum" will be announced at the county and statewide level.
