Shutdown cancels WA Guard weekend training

Washington National Guard units canceled monthly training this weekend because of the federal government shutdown.

A Guard spokeswoman said some 8,000 members of Army and Air Guard units across Washington will forego their drill weekend  -- and the paycheck from the federal government that goes with that.

Karina Shagren said the training sessions will have to be made up at some future point, and guard members will be paid for that.
