I am an engineer that has supported the Navy and Marine Corps for 26 years and have always given 100% to ensure that our military has the best capabilities in the world. Most of the people I work with have gone above and beyond to give the Navy and USMC our very best, especially during the many years or wartime. Due to sequestration and previous furloughs, I have already lost $10,000 of income this year and completely depleted my family's savings account. Now I am being furloughed again and this follows three years of frozen pay. I am worried for my wife and two young children because I cannot pay the bills if this shutdown continues. I do not blame one party or the other, I am sure they both think they are doing the right thing, but I worry they do not know the pain they are causing for the families of dedicated and hard working civil servants.
