Playing Politics with American Military Troops & Families - Government Shutdown
Dear President Obama,
I am the proud mother of two sons, one currently serving in Afghanistan, the other in the middle of basic training, Fort Benning Georgia.
My sons and their fellow peers, are putting their lives on the line, as our country leader are assured a warm and safe place to sleep, with no worry about how they will feed their family or how they will pay their bills.
In the event of a government shutdown, military personel may be requred to take on extra duty, while not being paid, until an agreement is reached.
It is unfair to our American troops and families, that their pay should be in limbo as out country leader play politics!
