Trump fought to pay Coast Guard during Shutdown and WON
From CBS News reporter @finnygo: Senior Admin sources tell me that @realDonaldTrump personally stepped in & pushed his staff to find a way to get @uscoastguard paid during shutdown after seeing news reports that USCG may not get next paycheck. Unlike other military, USCG fall under @DHSgov not @DeptofDefense.
Will Coast Guard members get paid on Dec. 31? Yes, the Administration, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Coast Guard have identified a way to pay our military workforce on Dec. 31, 2018. This one-time action applies to military members that served on active duty in the month of December and those reserve military members that drilled prior to the lapse in appropriation.
If you were an active duty military member in December, then you will receive your monthly paycheck on Dec. 31, 2018. That paycheck will include all of the normal pay and allowance benefits (e.g. basic pay, BAH, BAS, etc.).
If you were a reservist that served on active duty during the month of December, you will also receive your monthly paycheck on Dec. 31, 2018 and it will include all of your normal pay and allowance entitlements.
Finally, if you were a reservist that conducted reserve training prior to Dec. 21, 2018, then you will receive the appropriate pay and allowance entitlements on Dec. 31, 2018
