    because its right, but its also good politics.

    Veterans are an important group, and they have tended to be Republican in voting patterns.  But the last two years or so, from McCain dumping on voting for aid to veterans during the campaign, to this new program, has shown that Obama and the Democrats have veterans backs.   This is an important subgroup for the fall campaing.  Candidates need to make hay on this, plus votes by the Republican bloc stopping aid for homeless vets and their families, etc.
