DECATUR, Ala. (AP) — Fred Bentford is celebrating a resolution of a lifetime.
For Tom Bender, fighting for his fellow veterans means more than showing up once a year in Washington for an awe-inspiring motorcycle rally.
"It's a matter of priorities," Mr. Bender said, adding that despite the ongoing efforts of Rolling Thunder, the POW/MIA issue still isn't given the attention it deserves among lawmakers.
"It's tragic, but I've grown accustomed to it. I understand what obstacles they'll run into. I can help them navigate the system," Mr. Bender said Monday, as he sat in the waiting room of a New Jersey VA hospital.
