U.S. troops could be required to report to work without pay if a budget clash in Congress results in a government-wide shutdown, according to draft planning guidance circulating in the Pentagon. A shutdown could happen as early as next week, as the government is set to run out of money at midnight March 17.

Troops get paid. That is one of the services that run on 'autopilot'. There are only, really, a few things that do stop. It isn't like the gov't grinds to a halt. That would put us at a huge risk. Only the non-essential stops. I've been through this before. I don't remember noticing that much.
