--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The American Legion:
Daniel M. Dellinger, national commander of The American Legion, the country’s largest organization of wartime veterans.
Press conference to discuss problems for veterans, military retirees and their families created by the failure of the President and Congress to keep the government operating.

Congress and the White House are failing to uphold President Lincoln’s promise “to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan.” Veterans services must be protected, like military pay, as Congress and the Executive Branch continue their standoff over federal funding.
The American Legion wants our nation’s leaders to put aside politics and fix the mess that they alone created.
