Some Local Veterans Stand Up For Eaves

Some local veterans are speaking up to defend John Eaves. The veterans held a press conference Thursday afternoon saying Eaves was being unfairly attacked in political commercials.

The veterans say they agree with Eaves, who says the commercials accusing him of suing the military aren't telling the full truth.

Eaves says he's taken on at least three cases where he fought to get veterans the benefits the military denied them. In one case, Eaves says he fought for veterans whose children were born with debilitating handicaps as a result of their exposure to dangerous chemicals.

Eaves says two of the three cases are still pending.
