    Uniformed service members are on call 24/7. Do you have them not show up for watches? Not schedule training on Wenesday? Turn them out of the barracks one day a week to wander around off base?

    In effect, a 'furlough' for a service member would be nothing more than a simple pay cut. We don't hire these people by the hour, we enlist them by four or six year terms.
