I should hope so, the last time this happened I was in Iraq getting motared everyday, and we did not get paid till a couple of weeks after we were supposed to. It hurt my family sitting back in the states. This time I am in South Korea and my family is in the states. We had to make plans from our savings to at least make our bills. The threat of not getting paid is just like our families being punished for the government’s failures. While us military folks, some of which are being shot at right now, are worried about their family’s not being able to buy groceries…….. Damn right they need to pay us……………… That is all.
