…and the pain involved will be excruciating.
Sooo, how are those cuts going to be worked out in the Army?
Here’s a good clue.
Just like the last time a Democrat gutted the military, it’s going to be very, very painful.
This may even prevent the US from projecting its power abroad. That’s what they want you say? Maybe…
The Army will inactivate 194 units as part of a massive organizational overhaul slated to take place over the next four years.
The cuts are part of a comprehensive effort to shrink the active-duty force by 80,000 soldiers — bringing the force from a wartime high of about 570,000 to 490,000 — and reorganize the Army’s brigade combat teams.
On June 25, Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno announced the Army will cut 10 BCTs and reorganize the rest by adding a third maneuver battalion to most of the infantry and armored BCTs and boosting the engineer capabilities in each.
Under the Budget Control Act, the Army is required to cut$170 billion between now and 2020.
The Army also will relocate, convert and move various detachment- and platoon-level units through corps and component command headquarters, said Army spokesman William Layer.
There also are plans to “adjust” personnel levels at Army schools, garrison headquarters and training facilities at 36 installations. This includes increasing the number of personnel assigned to the Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention program, he said.
