One hundred thirty of the 1,000 civilian employees at Kauai’s Pacific Missile Range Facility in Kekaha will have 11 additional days off without pay between July 8 and Sept. 13, because of the Pentagon’s sequestration requirements, the Garden Island news paper reported today.

The furlough days are three in July; four in August; and four in September.
