The effect of federal shutdown is rippling into our local communities.

More than 1,000 PA National Guard Military Technicians are furloughed.

These are men and women serving our country in uniform.  The Pennsylvania Adjutant General made it known on Friday, that he is not happy and is deeply concerned for all of those furlough and layed off.

He says overtime the PA National Guard's ability to complete their duel mission of national defense and local emergency response, could be in question.

"When President Obama said and I quote., 'those in uniform will remain on normal duty status', how bewildering it is to our military technicians who wear the uniform and deployed over seas in combat to be taken off duty." Said Major General Wesley Craig.

Major General Craig wants his soldiers back on the job as soon as possible.More than 1,000 members of PA National Guard furloughed
