NORTH LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- 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 Nellis Facebook page has continuous posts about what's open and what's closed

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.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
