As the shutdown of the government drags on into its fourth week, federal employees are starting to feel the pain. Roughly 800,000 workers missed their paychecks last week, forcing many to turn to food banks and other public resources to get by. The shutdown is not longer a matter of political jousting over building a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border; it's officially a very real burden on the lives of public servants.

Those public servants includes more than 42,000 Coast Guard members who are currently going without pay. And while Coasties across the country are getting a helping hand from the communities they serve, there's an easy way that you can help.

A triple-amputee Air Force veteran who raised more than $20 million toward building a wall on the U.S./Mexico border is trying to circumvent efforts by the fundraising site GoFundMe to return the donations to more than 325,000 donors.

Brian Kolfage, who was severely wounded while serving in the Iraq, began accepting donations in December, but on Jan. 11 he announced that he would use the money raised to create an organization that would build the wall itself rather than giving it to the government.
