U.S. Congressman Marsha Blackburn

Clarksville, TN – The Pentagon announced today that it plans to trim the number of Army troops by 13 percent beginning in 2013.   U.S. Congressman Marsha Blackburn calls this “Dangerous.”

“The number one priority of our government is to protect the American people from threats to our nation.  It is extremely dangerous for President Obama to gut our nation’s defense when we all know it is already spread too thin,” Blackburn told Clarksville Online.

Earlier today, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said he was seeking to reduce the number of active US Army soldiers from 570,000 in 2010, to 490,000 by 2017.  Panetta proposed a $613 billion budget for the year starting in October-a $525 billion base spending plan and $88.4 billion for combat operations primarily in Afghanistan.
