(CNN) - President Barack Obama's presidential campaign touted the candidate's achievement of ending U.S. involvement in Iraq in a web video Monday, hours ahead of Obama's address at the annual convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Reno, Nevada.
The video also came the same day attacks across Iraq killed at least 44 people and wounded dozens more. While overall attacks have dropped off in Iraq since the height of violence in 2006, insurgents have routinely targeted Iraqi security forces and civilians since the United States withdrew its troops in December.
The video from Obama's campaign centers on a parade held in St. Louis in January, the first major "welcome home" ceremony to be held by a major U.S. city.
