FILE - In this Jan. 26, 2012 file photo, President Barack Obama speaks at Buckley Air Force Base, Colo. With a formal dinner for the few, President Barack Obama is paying tribute to the many. The president who opposed the Iraq war from its outset is thanking those who fought its battles by inviting in a small cross section of the million-plus who served there over the past nine years. The faces of war are sketched in the 200 veterans and their guests attending Wednesday’s dinner. They come from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories, and span generations, gender and all five branches of the military. (AP Photo/Haraz N. Ghanbari) less
