OCONUS PCS during shutdown

I am currently 21 days from my DEROS and have yet to recieve any orders to my recruiting assignment. Right now my Unit is telling me that all PCS moves have been put on hold. And no new orders are being cut. Any one run into the same problem? Or anyone heard whether or not this hold will apply to recuiting duty as well?

Check out Alaract 254 which was issued on 4 October. States that all in-process PCS moves are suspended and no new PCS moves will be issued. Our guidance was that only those individual who possessed FY13 travel orders would be allowed to leave.
There are some "excepted" PCS that will still happen, basically South Korea, those associated with supporting Afganistan, and a few other select PCS.

Because of the shutdown there is no PCS for any orders dated on or after 1 OCT 13, also there is no recruiting school classes since there is no money for TDYs....
