Kansas Military Units Resuming Functions

KSAL StaffOctober 17, 2013

Soldiers at Fort Riley will be able to resume normal training and education functions as the flow of federal money resumes to the nation’s military.

Activities had been curtailed for more than two weeks during the partial federal government shutdown.

Maj. Martin O’Donnell, spokesman for the 1st Infantry Division at Fort Riley, says Thursday that soldiers would begin returning to regular activities once funding is available. Fort Riley also will be able to resume normal community relations functions, such as supporting local parades or other gatherings.

Most of the civilian employees who were initially furloughed Oct. 1 were already at work after being recalled by the Department of Defense. O’Donnell says any remaining furloughed employees would be returning to work.
