There are about 20,000 veterans in Central Oregon and some are reacting to the news of Osama Bin Laden's death. We talked to some veterans at the Band of Brothers meeting in Bend Monday. "They’ve been looking for him for a long time. And I’m very honored it was the SEALS that found him. I am so happy for them.”  John Spence of Bend is a World War II Veteran.  He was a combat swimmer and a member of one of the original Navy Seals Teams. He attended Bend's Band of Brother's meeting. The President of the Bend Heroes Foundation, Dick Tobiason wasn't surprised that Bin Laden was finally killed: “well, when you destroy the leader of your enemy, you’ve done a lot of things to boost the morale of the troops who have been searching for him in the country for 10 years. So the head of the snake is gone, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t more snakes coming.” Each Monday the local Band of Brothers meets at Jake’s Diner in Bend and this meeting took on a much different tone; it was an atmosphere of celebration.
