Big boohoo-la at Facebook on the subject. My niece stationed in Afghanistan said "That is so not true. On the 15th of April, we will only be getting one weeks pay", after I posted a prior notice from DFAS ~ All active duty military and reservists will receive full pay on April 15 for duty served. Civilians will also get paid as usual. She should know about her paycheck, right?
According to News Max article. this was posted: “Due to the government shutdown, the Department of Defense has no legal authority to pay any personnel -- military or civilian -- for the days during which the government is shut down.” Military Sends Out Half-Pay Notice to War Zone Troops
I do believe my niece has not gotten a notice correcting the previously sent notice, in the event of a government shutdown which did not happen.
