National Guardsmen back on the job, for what its worth

by

FORT CUSTER (WKZO) -- 120-Air National Guardsmen that had been furloughed by the government shutdown last week are back on the job at their Fort Custer base, but they can’t be sure when they will get their next paycheck, there won’t be much they can do, and they could be furloughed again next Thursday, the 17th.

The bill that reinstated their pay did not fund anything else and that means pursuing their new mission, setting up a remote piloting operation for Air Force drones will have to wait.

In fact they may not have the money to pay to keep the utilities on past this month.
