HONOLULU ó The visitors' center at the USS Arizona Memorial will stay open during the federal government shutdown.

The National Park Service runs the visitors center. But the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports nonprofit organizations that operate historic sites at Pearl Harbor will provide financial support to keep the center open.

Pacific Historic Parks President Aileen Utterdyke says the nonprofits will do their best to avoid the disruption and inconvenience of a shutdown.

Navy sailors who operate shuttle boats to the memorial arenít affected by the shutdown.

Other nonprofits chipping in are the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, the Battleship Missouri Memorial and Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum.

The federal government partially shut down overnight after President Donald Trump, the House and the Senate were unable to agree on a spending deal.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
