I'm trying to be positive today, but --- if there is no progress in the next 6 hours or so, Theseus' paychecks will stop. Actually, they have already been preemptively halted, which is a real great sign, right? We'll be ok for a little while, with the money we have in savings, but this is just ridiculous. "Freedom isn't free," except when there's no budget and servicemembers are in Iraq and Afghanistan with no paychecks. We're sent around the world to advance the country's interests - whatever those may be - and then we're left hanging out to dry because our leaders can't agree on anything. Thanks a lot, dickheads.

3 years, 5 months and 9 days until I ETS (leave the Army)...

Budget was passed two hours before the deadline. I'm depressed that our country has fallen so far that we don't expect our government to do it's job. Come on people! Demand that the people you put in office do as you want them to. Also realize that while this is indeed the USA that you can't have it all.

I'm very depressed about the state of our nation. :-(
Sorry your feeling disillusioned with the military. While not a perfect system by any means I feel it has given me oppeetunities I wouldn't get elsewhere. Hell
