Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney will address the Veterans of Foreign Wars' annual convention -- a day after Texas Gov. Rick Perry did.

The former Massachusetts governor was invited to speak Tuesday since he was the only formally declared presidential candidate as organizers put together a list of presenters.

Perry has since jumped into the race and is leading many public opinion polls among those seeking the Republican presidential nomination.

Perry spoke Monday as governor of the host state, but mentioned foreign policy. He said American troops should only be led into combat by U.S. commanders.

The VFW, the nation's oldest major veterans organization, is meeting in San Antonio through Thursday.
