Obama’s Pentagon is cutting thousands of officers from the military, citing the demands of sequestration. Those being “laid off” include a number of officers on active duty, with “some receiving pink slips while on the battlefield.

According to Fox News, “Roughly 2,600 captains or other officers have or will be laid off, with more expected.”

Defense Department officials say the layoffs are “the result of mandatory spending cuts imposed by sequestration” and are being handled with “a balanced approach that maintains readiness while trying to minimize turbulence within the officer corps.”

But retired Major General Robert Scales does not agree. He says, “It puts the soldier, the soldier’s family, and the men under his command at risk. Young officers look at each and wonder who is next.”

Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) said:

Once again [President Obama] is putting domestic politics ahead of the security of our nation. The Army captains and majors receiving pink slips while on the battlefield is just the latest example.

My heart goes out to these men and women who are risking their lives and making great sacrifices, yet are now being told they are being separated from the Army and will have no job when they return to their families.

Just more of Obama’s weakening of America-maybe if he would stop vacationing, sending money to terrorists, paying for illegals to come to our country, golfing and 1000 other things he does to waste money then we wouldn’t need to do stories like this. Seriously though-this is his plan. His agenda. To bring America to it’s knees…unbelievable!
