My husband has been deployed for 7 months. His squadron just lost 2 pilots so the stress of flying and other life stressors is making the job tougher. I am a full time DoD employee but am unsure if we are getting paid. I know Pres. Obama signed a bill for active duty to get paid and the checks to be on time but that is all up to treasury having the funds to pay out. We have 2 kids and a new mortgage. We just got a letter about a 11% electric hike and school fees are going up. We can’t pay for this if the Shutdown continues. We could lose the, “American Dream.”
