(WLNS) - As the United States tries to re-adjust after a decade of war, the Pentagon is proposing a dramatic shrinking of the U.S. Military.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel sees the U.S. Military of the future as smaller, more focused and more "high tech."
His plan would shrink the number of troops in the Army to its lowest level since before World War 2.
It also calls for the elimination of the Air Force's A-10 attack jets and U-2 spy planes as well as a reduction of some military benefits.
Some critics foresee a damaging economic impact.
Hagel's plan will be fully outlined in President Obama's 2015 budget plan, which he'll submit to Congress sometime next week.
