FORT A.P. HILL, Va. (WTVR) – More than 100 Army Civilian employees have been furloughed, without pay, at Fort A.P. Hill due to the federal government shutdown.

“You are an incredibly resilient force that has displayed incredible strength and fortitude. Your sacrifices are not lost on the many Warriors who continue to choose A.P. Hill as their training destination of choice. For all the Warriors who have tread this ground, and those that will undoubtedly continue to come, we say ‘Thank you,’” USAG Fort A.P. Hill commander Lt. Col. Peter E. Dargle wrote in a statement.

In addition to the furlough, the shutdown will close the Fort A.P. Hill Identification Card office and the fort’s hunting and fishing programs.
