WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama is marking Veterans Day by making it his mission to ensure America has the back of its veterans.

In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says now that more veterans are coming home from wars, the U.S. must serve them as well. He's promoting programs to hire and educate veterans.

Obama says the U.S. has made progress in putting veterans to work but must do more. He says the country benefits from veterans' unmatched skill, dedication and courage.

Obama recorded his address in Washington before leaving Friday for New Orleans and Miami.

In the Republican address, Rep. Todd Young of Indiana is sharing stories of Americans he says were hurt by Obama's health care law. Young says he wants the penalty for not having insurance delayed.
