The Military Coalition Unites to End the Government Shutdown
Tuesday, October 15, 2013 from 9:45 AM to 11:00 AM (EDT)
The government shutdown continues to hurt the veterans and military community - and it has to end. On Tuesday, October 15th, we're going to send a clear message to Washington: end the shutdown now.
The Military Coalition, a coalition of 33 of the leading veterans and uniformed services organizations that represent more than 5.5 million members, are coming together with other leading veterans organizations at the World War II Memorial Tuesday morning to demand an end to the government shutdown.
We need you there. Will you join us on Tuesday?
Veterans who receive disability and GI Bill benefits and survivors who rely on survivor benefits don't know if they'll get their next check. National Guard and Reserve monthly training has been cancelled, affecting critical troop readiness and pay. Many services that military families count on daily are suspended.
We hope you’ll join us Tuesday morning.
