NORTH LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- While all active duty military remain on the job and will continue to get paid, their families are the ones feeling the pinch in this partial government shutdown.

From the commissary closure to the youth center to military tuition assistance, the ripple effects reach the families of those who keep the nation safe.

Military families say they are thankful their loved ones continue to draw their salaries as 1,100 civilian workers have been furloughed at Nellis Air Force Base.

The community is stepping up. Sam's Club is waiving membership requirements for all military and their families to help with grocery costs until the commissary reopens.
