Sequestration would kill hundreds of thousands of defense industry jobs, the Pentagon warns. Frank Kendall told senators during his nomination hearing to be the DoD acquisition chief that personnel accounts would be shielded so lower-tiered contractors would feel the brunt of cuts.
The Pentagon is telling lawmakers military retirees' share of health care costs is going to have to increase if it's going to meet the budget targets Congress and the President handed over with last year's budget control act.
The Army has released the implementation plan for how it will get its networked systems to a state it calls the "common operating environment." The strategy is designed to phase out stovepiped systems and begin building technologies to a common set of open standards.
Military services still struggle to track hazing incidents, but insist incidents that harm or demean servicemembers won't be tolerated.
