Hagel to propose shrink US army to smallest size in decades

Published: 02.24.14, 15:16 / Israel News

WASHINGTON - A US official said Monday that as part of the proposed 2015 defense budget, Pentagon chief Chuck Hagel is recommending shrinking the Army to its smallest size in decades.

  

Army leaders have been saying for months that they expected to absorb additional troop reductions as the US prepares to end its combat role in Afghanistan this year. The Army is already scheduled to shrink to 490,000 active-duty members from a wartime peak of 570,000. Hagel is expected to propose cutting it further to between 440,000 and 450,000. (AP)
