About 900,000 veterans and 5,000 active duty troops face cuts in their food stamp benefits beginning Thursday as $5 billion is automatically trimmed from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) program for low-income families.

I do hope that the same folks who stood with the veterans for photo-ops at the memorial recently will do the right thing.
