It’s a problem that I felt I needed another pair of Converse to match my Disney accessories... and at least the first step is admitting you have a problem, right? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀

Hard to believe a branch of the U.S. military is working without possible pay all because our elected officials can’t be reasonable adults. Not looking for pity, just awareness. Update: The Coast Guard will be getting a one time paycheck on the 31st

  • Holy shit, I didn’t have popcorn ready when I accidentally started reading this. There is the risk that if this goes on to long we actually won’t get back paid. I will say that all members of our service have the same opportunities to get married or not, buy a new car or not, buy a house or not, to have a family or not. That extra workload that you may carry at times, is also something someone may carry for you at some point. I hate saying the classic “it all works out in 20” but it’s kind of true. I mean people take on extra workloads during deployments, or when others are testing for SWE, and even C schools or specialty schools. I just don’t like seeing our brothers in team blue (especially with wings) arguing with each other, we are better than that. As far as the shut down goes, my family will have no issues and for that we are fortunate. But I will be doing whatever I can to help out my brothers at my unit and beyond. Because we all started the same way in MEPS but from that day on we have all had very different routes in life. I love all you guys, let me know if you need anything.

  • @alan_smiff I agree. My issue with all of this is people lacking empathy or understanding about when people voice their concerns about the probability of not being able to cover all their finances, and the ignorant remarks about how they all should have saved money like "adults" and how it's their fault that their spouses don't have a degree or a career. Many spouses do have degrees and have a career but don't work for a multitude of reasons. On the other hand, I don't support the argument that people are making that USAA or any other financial institution are required to provide pay day loans or assistance for those who may seek it or require it. We're all part of this organization, and we should look out for ourselves and each other. If anyone of us is well off and not affected, then we should implore ourselves to assist our fellow brothers and sisters in arms in whatever way possible. If for whatever reason someone doesn't want to, then they should keep to themselves. Not go and bash others and make ignorant comments. Especially when they might already be on their knees struggling. Speaking from experience, it's very demoralizing and embarrassing. Like you said Alan, we all help carry each other at some point. Let both sides not forget that humility and empathy during moments like these are what's needed.
