SECDEF Hagel this week told reporters if sequestration continues on its same path even more personnel cuts will be mandatory. The Army will have to deactivate more combat brigades and reduce its force to 450,000 soldiers. The USMC would have to get down to 150,000 Marines. The USAF would have to deactivate some squadrons and the USN would cut its aircraft carrier groups from 11 to 8. Reductions in military compensation packages would include health benefits to retirees as well as reduced pay raises and housing subsidies for active duty personnel/civilians.
