The Pentagon has announced that 20,000 US Marines are planned to be cut from the pay. Does that mean that these 20,000 Marines will be applying for unemployment? The change is due to Defense department-wide budget cuts. This will reduce their number to 182,000, a much smaller number than what was being advocated for in the passed few years.
The good news it that we can be secure about peacetime staying for a few more years :)
