Another group of military veterans is scheduled to arrive in D.C. tomorrow morning to carry out a second protest, demanding lawmakers immediately end the government shutdown.

The protest is being organized by the Military Coalition (TMC), a group of 33 organizations that represents 5.5 million people. Members are comprised of the uniformed services—active, reserve, retired veterans, survivors and their families.

The event is scheduled for Oct. 15, 2013 from 9:45am-11:00am and will begin at the National WWII memorial. Some of the participating organizations include: the Air Force Association, CWOA, US Coast Guard, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, Military Order of the Purple Heart, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and the Wounded Warrior Project.

The Washington Times reports that TMC wants to let the government know that they need to stop putting servicemen in the “middle of their political games.”

TMC’s protest arrives on the heels of the “Million Vet March” that occurred over the weekend attracting thousands of veterans who marched on the National Mall and the White House to peacefully demonstrate their anger over the government shutdown.

Veterans voiced their displeasure for the closing of the memorials as they took down the barricades and carried them to the White House where they stacked them neatly out front.

“This is our way of life. We will not stand by and let the U.S. government dishonor the legacy of sacrifice of the generations before us. It’s time to make a stand,” read the Million Vet March’s website.

TMC believes in strength in numbers and hopes the rally will grab the attention of lawmakers tomorrow, and put an end to the suffering inflicted on veterans stemming from the government shutdown. Veterans on disability and GI Bill benefits are unsure if they’ll receive their next check, and their availability of medical care has been severely limited following the rollout of Obamacare.

Families who have lost loved ones in the 13-year hoax known as the “war on terror,” have been denied government death benefits, which are allocated to the families for funeral expenses. Fortunately non-profit groups stepped up and used their own savings to help military families cover funeral expenses for their loved ones.

Change.org has started a petition asking Washington to “keep veterans our of their political nonsense.” Click here to sign.

The country is growing increasingly agitated as the government shutdown enters its second week. A computer glitch over the weekend spurred “mini riots” after food stamps holders exploited temporary unlimited credit balances. Food stamp holders cleared shelves at Wal-mart stores across the nation in an attempt to purchase food with balances that didn’t exist, prompting some managers to close their stores.
