Death Benefits Restored To Military Families

Posted: Updated:
Washington, D.C. -

The Senate has unanimously approved legislation to restore death benefits to military families.

Benefits were cut almost two weeks ago due to the government shutdown - drawing outrage in congress from both sides of the aisle.  It's one in a series of house republican bills passed to reopen parts of the government.  Families of service members who die receive 100-thousand dollars -- among other benefits.
