Veterans programs may soon feel sting of budget impasse
ST. PAUL – Two federal government shutdown episodes stand out for U.S. Rep. Tim Walz.
One is families of military personnel killed in duty not receiving federal aid they were due. The other is World War II veterans, elderly men and women just off an airplane, not being allowed to see a new Washington, D.C. memorial in their honor.
“Some people did not realize there are consequences to shutting down the government,” Walz said.
