Furloughed Employees Return to Work

Posted: Updated:

FORT SILL Okla_ They're back on the job: 100% of Altus Air Force Base civilians and some 2,500 Department of the Army civilians are back at work at Fort Sill Monday. 

The message comes from the Public Affairs Office. The decision was made by Fort Sill's higher command after a weekend directive from the Pentagon. A Public Affairs spokesperson said as it stands now, they will get paid, but Congress will have to pass a funding bill. 

We're also told Fort Sill's Commissary is open again, but they are short of perishable items. A spokesperson said trucks are coming in, and those items should be available in 48 to 72 hours.
