Response to go west young man (Reply #4)

7. I really don't care if they play the game or not as long as they both have to accept forfeit. The

service academy football programs are usually not funded by appropriations but by athletic department fees (self-sustaining programs) and contributions. The coaching staffs aren't government employees but are paid by the non-governmental athletic associations.

You run into this seemingly same disconnect on military bases everywhere. Commissaries (grocery stores) are closed because they run on appropriated funds. Post Exchanges/Base Exchanges, and Morale Welfare Recreation facilities (for example golf courses) aren't paid for with appropriated funds - so they are open.

Uniformed military personnel are at work and will be paid on time. With Civil Servants it's split - many of us are furloughed. Others are working as emergency essential but won't actually get paid until after funds are appropriated.
