2015 Pentagon budget released

2015 Pentagon budget released

By Andrew Tilghman, Air Force Times

The Pentagon’s new budget released Tuesday says military personnel spending should fall to its lowest point since 2008 as cuts to compensation take effect and the force continues to shrink from its wartime peak.

The budget documents for 2015 offer new details on Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s proposals last week to reduce spending on pay and benefits. Those included controversial calls for Congress to limit troops’ pay raises, slash housing allowances by about 6 percent, eliminate commissary subsidies in many locations and boost Tricare fees for families of active-duty troops and working-age retirees.
