Shutdown outrage: Military death benefits denied to families of fallen troops - Washington Times
This is utterly shameful.
"The Pentagon revealed the elimination of funeral pay, along with other impacts of the shutdown, in a press release."
We have plenty of money and to do this is the lowest form of cowardice and political BS that I have ever heard of. Shame on whoever came up with this politically driven idea and I hope they have their balls nailed to the wall.
