Defense Cuts_Rich(1).jpg

In this photo taken July 17, 2013, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, flanked by Air Force personnel, walks down the rear ramp of a C-17 at Joint Base Charleston near Charleston, S.C., on the last day of a three-day trip to visit bases in the Carolinas and Florida. When Hagel told civilian Department of Defense workers on the base that job furloughs, that have forced a 20% pay cut on most of the military's civilian workforce, will likely continue next year, and may get even worse, the audience softly gasped in surprise and gave a few depressed low whistles. He said 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. (AP Photo/Bruce Smith)
