I have been upset to read that so many families are going to have to worry about a paycheck while being forced to continue working, but a story on tonight's news really P*SS*D me OFF!
A soldier in the USMC from our state was reported to have been killed in the line of duty.
And let me get this right...they're only paying one of the weeks from this paycheck? Yeah. That really REALLY burned my @$$!!! Sorry for some of the language ladies, but I mean my lord.
It led me to the question, what will happen with his benefits? Will his family receive death benefits and pensions like they should? Or is that delayed if the government shuts down. I cannot imagine the thought of burying my spouse and worrying about how I was going to feed our family at the same time. It is just atrocious.
And what about health benefits for military families? This incident aside, will that continue? I saw a sign at my OB's office today that had a list of different insurances and said "if you have one of these plans, we need to talk with you TODAY." and I wondered if that was related.
