Military downsizing over budgetary concerns

Updated: Monday, August 4, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - New budgetary concerns are causing the military to downsize.

A new report out of Washington says 550 Army majors, including some serving in Afghanistan, will soon be told they have to leave the service by next spring.

Officials say some of those soldiers could join the National Guard or Army Reserve.

These latest cuts come just months after 12-hundred captains were slashed from the ranks.
