Democratic Sen. Patty Murray of Washington has worked for five years to change the law.
June 5, 2015 - Servicemen and women who are wounded in war have to rebuild their lives, and the goal of having a family keeps many of them going. But an act by Congress decades ago is still preventing some veterans from achieving that goal, reports CBS News correspondent Jan Crawford.
