I am in the coast guard and at the moment just received news we will miss another pay check. My question is, could this be considered a breach of contract that would allow me to separate?
This is not considered a breach of contract and therefore you cannot seek a separation for lack of payment due to a gov't shutdown. Just ride out the storm.
