Colorado Springs Independent:

Veterans injured in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will play a greater role on the U.S. Paralympics team in coming years - and that has Sen. Wayne Allard pushing for a new headquarters for Paralympics Inc. in Colorado Springs.

"There's an increasing number of vets in the burgeoning Paralympics population," says Allard's chief of staff, Sean Conway. "The senator thinks they deserve the best."

As of the 2012 Olympics in London, about 10 percent of Paralympics athletes are expected to be veterans of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a draft of the bill that could be introduced this week.

I'd like to see Sen. Allard push for more veterans' benefits...
