Military community exasperated at prospect of prolonged shutdown threats

WASHINGTON — Same story, different budget deadline, same headaches for veterans.

The move delays the next budget showdown until November but doesn’t calm the frustration of veterans who have seen their benefits and military programs held hostage by partisan squabbles three times in the last six months.  http://www.stripes.com/news/military-community-exasperated-at-prospect-of-prolonged-shutdown-threats-1.156256
