LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – The Arkansas National Guard announced that all reserve component military pay will be delayed.

This delay stems from a lack of budget or continuing resolution delegated by Congress. The current resolution is set to expire this Wednesday, and this is the third time in 12 months that pay has been delayed.

Guardsmen are frustrated but said they are getting used to it.

“I hate to say it’s the new norm. I hope it’s not, but it’s a challenge that we will overcome. I know our leadership is doing everything that they can to mitigate the impact,” said state public affairs officer Mett Sneed.

Around 8,500 guardsmen have drilled over the past two weekends; their pay for that service is to be recorded but not dispersed until funding is restored.

    If the Government can’t keep its word to the Military, why would we believe anything they promise. This is a disgusting event.

  • Ostupid and the Left wing idiots have enough money to give to illegal aliens but can’t seem to find the money to support our armed forces. Shameful.

  • Kevin says:

    Obama is a disgrace !!!

  • me says:

    Ridicious on both ends. The state officals blame federal officials but the state should have delayed drill if they didn’t have the money to pay.

  • Brian says:

    There really is no excuse for this. Pretty disgraceful for our Governor and Military Officials… The AGR folks are still getting paid though…

  • ifucsheep says:
