Sequestration would force involuntary separations of combat vets
from Army News Service via Hawai'i Army Weekly
Dropping the Army’s end strength to 450,000 would require the involuntary separation of about 14,000 soldiers, the Army’s vice chief of staff told lawmakers. Gen. Daniel B. Allyn testified, March 25, before the Senate Armed Services subcommittee on readiness. He warned that sequestration would have a detrimental effect on the force. "It will increase significantly the involuntary separation of officer and noncommissioned leaders who have steadfastly served their country through the last 13 years of war," Allyn said.
