Local bases escape brunt of Marine Corps cuts

from UT San Diego

The Marine Corps plans to cut its active-duty ranks by about 20,000 in the next five years, because of the end of U.S. combat operations in Iraq, the rapid drawdown underway in Afghanistan and national budget strains. But the impact on Marine bases in San Diego County will be minimal, according to details recently released and local Marine Corps representatives. East Coast installations will be hardest hit as the Marines downsize by about 10 percent, from 202,100 to 182,100. more
