    Exclamation Military + Gov't shutdown = ????

    So far I haven't gotten any word of the impending doom from leaders. So what happens to us? The only thing one of my friends found from calling finance, is they are to issue a one week, paper, check. And NO PAY till this is over. And then its optional to pay us back.

    Anyone know any more, REAL FACTS?

    Uh... Because of the funding issues, we the soldiers can possibly not get paid, but one week, on a check that resembles one from your check book. All this until they figure the new funding bills.........My pay has been about the same through out the years, and now this? Why is this so hard to just keep us paid as is, and then adjust it when the bills are passed?

    Military still gets paid from what I understand. It's all the other government jobs out there that will stop reporting to work.

    I just read on military.com that if the previous bill expires on the 8th, we will get a pay check for the first week of April and no more till this bill gets passed. And it is not mandatory we get paid back.

    Obama: Government Shutdown Will Delay Pay To Troops

    According to this you'll get one week paid, and your pay will continue to accrue, but you won't receive a check until Congress passes a new budget.

    My suggestion, call your representative, if they're democrat tell them to pull their head out of their ass and try to save more money, if they're republican tell them its dirty to jerk off to a photo of Reagan in their office, and do something productive for once, because if history repeats itself they'll end up being the idiots who made the deficit worse.
    "This is a ridiculous cause and effect suggestion."
    "Yeah, kind of like the sun rising and then morning happening, eh? What are they trying to pull on us?"

    "If I wanted to hear from an asshole, I'd fart into a microphone."

    "It's easy. Take the last f*ck, and let it go, and thus you shall have no more f*cks to give."

    Welcome to voluntary servitude. This probably explains why my command has been working me 70+ hours per week.

    can't you say something useful? like normal people do...
    Those, who stand for nothing, will fall for anything.
    On the Internet you can be anything you want. It's strange that so many people choose to be stupid.
