After having served the US Army for the past 27 years without a break in service, today will be my first day out of work. I spent 24 years in uniform and the past 3 as a GS worker for the Army.

I volunteered to be furloughed so more of my employees may continue to work and get paid once this is over.

Now I am waiting for HR to come to work so myself and 14 others, who support the US Army warfighter, can get the furlough paperwork and go home.

i agree thank you for volunteering. i still think both sides are being stupid. dont pay congress and it will get settled fast enough!! meanwhile i heard that they dropped funding for the school lunch program, the school lunch program will continue until the current food supply runs out, so poor kids dont get breakfast or lunch some food pantries are helping out as best they can. as usual the poor end up paying for the rich.

Thank you for your many years of service! I saw a picture on Facebook with a caption of:

"You have enough money to go to war, but not enough money to pay your employees?"

Our government has become an embarrassment...

Thank you all. You are all the best.
The bright side is maybe I'll have enough time to find a girlfriend now. Lol

And I must add that the lady you meet will be the luckiest lady in the world :)
