We wanted to take the time to recognize that many people are probably still feeling a little worried about the next potential government shutdown in November. Without an elected Speaker, the House is frozen with what they can do, and this includes moving legislation forward to stop a government shutdown in November.
We understand that you may already be facing some other challenges (maybe one of the top 5 family issues from 2022? - spouse employment, time away due to military service, military pay, BAH/off-base housing concerns, or relocation/PCS issues) on top of the possible government shutdown.
We see and recognize that if you are struggling with any of those top issues that the government shutdown would greatly impact your family. We want to highlight some of the upcoming BSF events and programs you can utilize:
Blue Star Careers
Military Spouse Career Resources
BSF Nourish the Service
Peer to Peer Support Networks
Blue Star Perks
We will continue to monitor these two situations and keep posting here with any updates/resources we find may be helpful to you and your family.
Thanks for the update, Kit. I know I certainly appreciate all you do to keep myself and our members informed on the things that affect our military lives.
Happy to keep everyone as informed as we can!
