As a veteran I know what it is like to be someone who voluntarily put your life on the line. For our soldiers who are deployed and don’t have a way to be able to make money when the government decides that they can’t agree on the budget, it would be deflating to know that you’re not getting paid. For all of our soldiers they need to concentrate on the mission at hand. Not how is their loved ones going to pay the bills while congress sorts out how they’re going to balance a budget. Pay for the military should never be in jeopardy.
