FORT DRUM, N.Y. (AP) - Hundreds of non-uniformed military employees in New York face furloughs because of the federal government shutdown.
While military troops continue to work, the state Division of Military and Naval Affairs is sending about 1,500 workers out on furloughs Tuesday afternoon, including maintenance technicians and clerks. Also, there will be no training for part-time Army and Air National Guard members during the shutdown.
At Fort Drum in northern New York, 250 of the roughly 790 civilian employees at the garrison were informed Tuesday morning that they'll be furloughed. Spokeswoman Julie Cupernall says that includes a wide range of employees, such as those involved in public affairs and some electricians.
Maj. Gen. Stephen Townsend says that Fort Drum, home to the 10th Mountain Division, remains committed to supporting its soldiers.
