y’all...navy fed puts up the money to pay the military during shutdowns. I’m from a military family and am living with an active duty seaman at Sasebo, and I can tell you that we’ve never not been paid or anything during a shutdown. Life is continuing as normal. Literally the only difference we’ve seen is that AFN (our radio/TV station) is offline because that’s a free service, and the guys that work in those positions don’t do anything when they get to work. Military personnel are not starving or going without, despite what republican politicians are telling you. The biggest concern on base right now is that AFN won’t be back before the Super Bowl.
