Direction for possible shutdown

Florida Guard Team,

As you are aware, our federally elected leadership is working diligently to keep our government operating over the next few days. I’m encouraged by the optimism surrounding a possible agreement in the near future by the media. That said, I have directed our leaders to prepare their units/directorates for a possible shutdown tonight at midnight. Everyone will need to report to work tomorrow and take guidance from their leadership.

It is our hope that these preparations will stay precautionary. We will keep you updated with current and accurate information. Please continue to monitor our media resources, as we have added new content: FLNG Website (, Twitter (, and Facebook ( I have also attached our Florida Military-Friendly Guide 2013 that may be useful both now and in the future.

Finally, I want all our Guard Family to know that we value every one of our employees and continue to fight for their welfare.
