My DS just informed me ( result of budget cuts) that 2014 field training has been reduced from 28 days to 26 days. From what I understand this 2 day reduction in training time relieves the government of any obligation to pay the cadets for field training as the total time commitment is now less than a month, resulting in no stipend for the participating cadets. Is there somebody who can confirm the accuracy of this information and/or provide information on any other changes that might be happening with the upcoming field training? (assuming that the government shutdown will have been resolved by next summer) Pima??
