Tennessee National Guard Furloughs Employees Due to Government Shutdown


Tennessee Military DepartmentNashville, TN – The government shutdown leaves more than 1,500 Tennessee National Guard military technicians and contract employees throughout the state on unpaid furlough.

Major General Max Haston, Tennessee’s Adjutant General notified employees last week of possible furloughs beginning on October 1st, 2013.

“This is an across the board furlough effecting essentially every military technician and contract employee in the Tennessee Army and Air National Guard,” Haston said. “There is no question that this will  cause serious hardships on our employees and degrade our ability to conduct operations, but even with the government shutdown, our remaining Soldiers and Airmen will strive to continue to meet the challenges and ensure the security of our state and nation.  Our Active Guard and Reserve (AGR) and Tennessee State employees will continue to work and maintain essential operations of the Military Department.”
