Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – With the government shutdown looming, Fort Campbell officials are maneuvering to lessen the adverse impact on its Soldiers, Families and civilian workforce as much as possible.

“In matters of life, health and safety, as well as in maintaining our national security, we’re going to continue normal operations and mitigate negative impacts as best we can,” said Garrison Commander Col. David “Buck” Dellinger.

Federal government operations and programs are funded through appropriations approved by Congress and become law when signed off on by the president. That’s yet to be done for FY-14, and both Congress and the president failed to pass the spending bill by midnight, Monday September 30th.
