US vet wounded in UkraineWith additional funding for Ukraine caught up in U.S. politics, some Americans who were wounded fighting alongside Ukraine's forces as they battle to fend off Russia's invasion visited Capitol Hill on Wednesday and Thursday, along with family members of others who were killed in action, to urge lawmakers to approve more money for Kyiv.

One U.S. Marine veteran who joined the fight in Chernihiv in 2022, where he received significant shrapnel wounds to his arms, legs and torso from a grenade dropped by a Russian drone, spoke with CBS News about meeting the U.S. lawmakers but asked to be identified by a pseudonym, as he plans to return to the fight once he's recovered.

Adam, part of a delegation organized by the R. T. Weatherman Foundation, spoke with congressional staffers to share his first-hand account of the war, and he stressed the urgency for more U.S. military aid to reach Ukraine's forces, in particular conventional artillery shells, which are quickly running out.
