Defense Department Civilians Return to Work

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel recently announced that a good majority of Defense Department civilians will once again be returning to work. This comes nearly a week after the government shutdown due to a lapse in appropriations.

Hopefully, all civilian employees will return in the near future. To stay up-to-date with the latest news on the shutdown, check out the American Forces Press Service special report.

One Response to Defense Department Civilians Return to Work

  1. Timo says:

    What about Catholic priests who are contractors and were not allowed to access their offices, hear confessions or say Mass on military installations this past weekend, and indeed were even threatened with severe punitive actions if they attempted to do so, even when they were volunteering to do so without pay. This is worse than absurd! This is a clear violation of the constitution. I am almost ashamed to be a retiree with 39 years of service.
