My husband and i are gonna go see our Sailor son hopefully next month if he can ever get off work. i am thankful he has a job he was unemployed almost all last year. its either no work or lots of it. our son doesnt bring up the happenings that we they are dealing with. personally i wouldnt believe anything at this point. wondering about the government shut down thats ahead???I am so worried about America and our military...:( please pray for this President and all to come to their senses and start using their brains!
Carebear77630 I'm with you!!! We need to get the word to those clowns in Washington!!!! I'm just sick to my stomach !!!
Ok i believe in some cuts but all these cuts to our military POs me!!!!! i want a strong ready America----------! my daddy faught in WW2 he was a medic on the front lines in Normandy he wouldnt believe the crap thats going on in washington. congress house and senate need to grow up! I am so scared we are loosing our great country! i am from the red state of Texas im ashamed of the Democrats and yes the republicans and our President! their i said it. have a blessed weekend all and please pray for our country and our military...they need it more than ever*
Same here! She messaged me before that one too! I feel so bad for her! there is no reason he should be going back out! Its ridiculous! I agree our defense spending needs to cut back but in other ways. They waste millions!!! Or the hundreds of thousands of dollars in scrap metal they throw away. Why not reuse that or sell it to a scrap yard? I always tell Michael if I was in charge of the Navy for a few years we would be saving money every year. Then we can use that to help our sailors out! Ugh... my soapbox!!! lol
Sick to our stomachs are we!!
The sailors will still get paid as of now. they will send them to other ships if needed, or they will work on getting the ship ready for the drydock for the future. They just dont have money for the overhaul. So they wont move over to the shipyards because they cant pay the company. There wont be a 20% pay cut as of now. the pay cut that is propsed is actually just not as big of a raise as it was supposed to be. In Jan 2014 all servicemembers are supposed to get a 1.7% raise, now they are proposing a .7% raise instead. Kim I was so sad for her when I heard. :( She messaged me about it the other day!
I agree with Kim, eventually each sailor will have duty and get paid his regular salary. It just takes time.
I wasn't aware of "no money"...my son was also on the Lincoln and now dry docked but he is receiving his pay.
They will put them to work doing something. It's sad that our sailors are even in a situation that we have to ask this question. I have a Navy wife friend whose hubby is assigned to the Roosevelt. (they have also quit working on that carrier now) He went out with the Lincoln last deployment and is leaving soon with the Enterprise. They get their sea duty in and perform their jobs even if it's on a different ship.
