JNS.org The national director of the Jewish War Veterans of the USA as well as The Military Coalition, a coalition of 33 leading veterans and military organizations, said that the White House and Congress are financially neglecting veterans and members of the military through the ongoing government shutdown.

Retired Army Col. Herb Rosenbleeth spoke during a Tuesday rally at the National World War II Memorial about the shutdown, which has lasted 15 days and “is eroding military readiness,” he said.

“Veterans are afraid they will not be receiving disability and pension checks, dependents and survivors are afraid they will not receive their benefits,” he said. “Our veterans have served this country; and we need the country to serve our veterans.”
