CNN PRODUCER NOTE RDavidson926 is a retired Navy Reservist in northern California. Her surgery was scheduled to be performed at Travis Air Force Base on Tuesday. She received a call Monday afternoon saying it was cancelled due to the impending shutdown. (UPDATE: The surgery has been rescheduled for Wednesday, regardless of the shutdown.) 'I joined the military because I believed in our country and our government, however, this present situation is disgraceful and sends a horrible message to the rest of the word about what America has become.'
