Members of U.S. military concerned about possible gov't shutdown

LEONARDO - Military members near Naval Weapons Station Earle in Leonardo spoke with News 12 New Jersey about their concerns over a possible government shutdown. Men and women in uniform would stop getting their paychecks if there's a freeze on spending.

Sailor Dominick Agnello, 24, who is originally from Hawthorne, worries a delay in pay will be a major strain for his fellow sailors with spouses and children.

Angello says if he had a wife waiting back home that was unable to pay her bills, it would be extremely stressful.
