this is so disgraceful. According to the DOD they told the White house this would happen, the White house is saying they werent aware it would. Who to believe? I think I believe the DOD. I remember reading an article prior to the shutdown that said death benefits would not be paid if the government shutdown.

Regardless, we shouldn't be depending on charities to do this. When those servicemembers joined, they signed a contract stating their families would be paid. Our government needs to uphold their end..not depend on a private charity to do it for them

New LOW for our government and country.

God bless the 26 souls who have died since this shutdown, and God bless those families who are now a pawn in this political mess.

or donate it to fisher house who has generiosly stepped up when the government stepped back.

I just read that the GI BILL will cease 11/1 if the shutdown continues. That is what prior service uses and what a lot sign up to get.

sad.
