    The government is planning for government shut down. They sent letters to the soldiers to not abandon their posts and to plan ahead on not getting paid next month.

    They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it's not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance.

      Others have simply gotten old. I prefer to think I've been tempered by time.

        It was a letter from command to my son. It said 'you may not be receiving pay next month. Please show up for work anyway, we will'. That's a little hard to misread. Maybe it's just his unit, but since he's special forces, this does not bode well. It was from command, not the pentagon. This is a unit that's in country, so it's not like he can get a job or something.

          account, I think he/she might be in trouble. Please find a investigative reporter who can dig deeper.
