(CNN) - The Pentagon issued guidance on Friday on how a potential government shutdown, which would begin on Tuesday absent a congressional agreement on spending, would impact its operations.
"All military personnel will continue in a normal duty status regardless of their affiliation" under a shutdown scenario, Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter wrote in a memo to military commanders and other senior defense officials.
The Republicans are such "PATRIOTS"!
I'd like to hear the "shut it down" voices on the Right comment on this article.
Our soldiers, on duty, won't get paid. DEFEND THAT.
How does this affect U.S. sky marshals? Or is that classified?
And if the troops don't get paid, I see no problem with them going A.W.O.L. Since republicans want to shutdown the government, let's send their butts to Afghanistan and make them stand post.
To our servicemen, keep voting teatards.
Remember that they will continue to get paid while they spit on your service and sacrifice to the Nation.
