    It's called a "no-pay" and their finance department should be processing them under an emergency if for some reason beyond their control they didn't get paid. If they failed to submit their orders for processing then it's not an emergency and they will get paid on the next cycle.

    There's something going on here that doesn't seem right. What is DFAS saying?

    Guard/Reserve... NO they don't. If you are on orders you must pay for the dining facility and the barracks depends on how far from home you are. My unit is 90 minutes per Mapquest, I'm 81 minutes so no hotel for me. No barracks for anyone.
