Charity Stepping Up To Ensure Families Get Death Benefits For Fallen Troops

Posted: Updated:

A charity is helping the families of fallen US troops get their death benefits restored.

The deal between the Department of Defense and the Fisher House Foundation means the families will receive $100,000 in compensation.

That benefit was taken away when the government shutdown certain services last week.  

The Fisher House Foundation will make those payments until the shutdown is over.
