Steve Rayner, who is in charge of veterans support services at the University of Southern Indiana, said dozens of the 250 student veterans are concerned and have asked him whether they'll receive an allowance next month. Rayner said, unfortunately, he's unable to give them an answer.
Navy veteran Brendan McCormick said he's disappointed with the way the government has handled its affairs, but is confident it'll all work out, whether the government is open or closed.
"I feel that USI and the VA is going to take care of me," McCormick said. "Or try the best that they can to take care of me."
