Military Pay already being cut!!

If you check your LES, military pay has already been cut. Please spread the word. It hasn't even been announced on the news yet! So much for "they have until midnight" it's already started!

You know our elected civil servants didn't have to give up anything and neither did our Federal servants. We always start at the smallest person and work our way up the ladder. Can't hurt anyone at the top!!!

This makes me angry, angry, angry!!! Our military gets so little pay or support but they put their lives on the line for the rest of us. They leave their families and jobs to go to low pay, high risk situations and this is how we repay them. Pity:(

Stop believing the uninformed. This is not a pay cut. The pay will remain the same, it will be retroactive. A pay cut means you make less. As in a cut in base pay. This is a temporary loss of funding. Stop spreading this stuf.

Navy Federal is going to compensate the military how have an account with them for the difference in pay. I just got off the phone with them, such good news. When the back pay shows up they will then take it back.

This is true my husband checked his LES and its half, all the soldiers around JBLM have checked thiers and its been cut!!! So much for trusting the government for support. And its our men and women they keep them safe

This is true my son is in the Army he was notified today that he will only be paid for 8 days on the 15 instead of the normal 15 day period, the pay on the 1st will not be paid, How are these men and women support them selfs an their families

JAKE says ... on Friday, Apr 8 at 12:23 PM

This can be verified because i dont even use Navy Federal but supposively they will compensate for what hasn't been paid and just take the back pay when we get it. Reply if this is verified so if people dont already know this they will.

This is so not right. How dare the military men and women suffer because of the selfish bickering by Congress.
