Historically, we have always got back pay. Congress is not required to by law, and in the current political climate, is unlikely. The NG unit I work with has AGR (active duty guard/reserve) guys that are all furloughed, no pay due, this morning. The Chinooks and UAV's are grounded. My buddy said they are also pushing back drill (had the range scheduled this weekend on a Federal base) so who knows. The taco will be the last thing I get rid of if the SHTF.
