Harsh Pentagon budget cuts

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel chats with Air Force personnel Wednesday, July 17, 2013, at Joint Base Charleston near Charleston, S.C. Hagel was on the third day of a three-day trip to visit bases in the Carolinas and Florida. He told civilian Department of Defense workers that, if the department has to absorb another $52 billion in cuts next year because of the federal sequester, there will likely be layoffs instead of furloughs.
