Veterans Discuss the Government Shutdown

Story by May-Jacqueline Patterson, Reporter

The 16-day, partial government shutdown in October affected many Americans. Several government ser- vices, payments and salaries came to an abrupt halt.

ACC student and Army veteran Jeremiah Rodriguez learned about the shutdown while watching the news on TV. He said he wasn’t sure if it affected the GI Bill payments which cover his tuition and provide a housing allowance.

“One thing I do know for certain is the government shutdown did not affect the health care I receive for being a veteran,” he said. “I had a medical emergency that needed to be taken care of.”

Veteran Miguel Segura, who also learned about the government shutdown through the media, said the shutdown did not cause him any long-term problems.

“It just took the government a long time to pay the school and to give me my housing allowance.”

He said ACC was understanding about the delay in his tuition payment, but it was still a stressful time as he waited for the payments to come in.

  8. Ban Pin Railway Station
    It is a train station with a unique building with European art over 100 years old. It is the first and only railway station in Thailand built in the Bavarian style of “frame house” or wooden frame. which is very popular in the Bavarian region of Germany. In addition, Phrae has the most abundant teak forest. This resulted in the concept of design blending with the traditional Thai hip-hop houses. Which was popular in that era perfectly. Even after more than a hundred years, the building still looks beautiful and valuable.
