LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- The partial government shutdown could affect thousands of Michigan National Guard members.

Maj. Gen. Gregory Vadnais is director of the Michigan Department of Military and Veterans Affairs and adjutant general of the Michigan National Guard. He says in a statement a suspension of operations is expected that could affect about 900 guard members.

Vadnais says training and other duties could be cancelled, affecting thousands of other Guard members.

On Monday, Vadnais said the Michigan National Guard plans to continue to support key military operations regardless of a government shutdown.
