Beau Biden: Many troops targeted by predatory financial practices

U.S. troops readily put their lives in danger to protect the freedoms Americans enjoy, and their challenges often aren't over even after coming home from the battlefield.

Service members and their famlies are often the targets of predatory financial practices, and many face problems ranging from debt to foreclosure.

Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, an Iraq war veteran and the son of Vice President Joe Biden, is leading the fight to protect American troops from financial dangers at home.

On Starting Point today, Biden explains why service members are targeted by financial scams and outlines the measures that need to be imposed to address these issues.
