Well sometime this week the Senate should adjourn for the holidays and the 113th session of Congress will be over, unless something blows up and everyone has to return after Christmas. That is extremely, EXTREMELY unlikely but we have been surprised before. What we are not looking at is a federal government shutdown before the end of the fiscal year. On Friday the Senate passed the NDAA and on Saturday after a good deal of drama they passed the CROmnibus that will finance most of the federal government through September 30th 2015. The exception is the Department of Homeland Security which will only be funded through February- which may be real trouble for the Coast Guard but more on that down below.

Please support this important initiative by actively going out and bringing at least one veteran to our organization. The simple truth is that if EACH ONE actually REACHes ONE - together, we will have helped create a voice in Washington which cannot be ignored by our legislators! We thank you in advance for understanding and aiding this important mission.
