MILLER SAYS ADAM NORMALLY PLAYED GAMES IN THE WATER- HE EVEN OFTEN PLAYED DEAD.

THE U.S. ARMY COULD SHRINK TO ITS SMALLEST SIZE SINCE WORLD WAR TWO.

TODAY, THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT ANNOUNCED MAJOR SPENDING CUTS THAT AFFECT EVERY BRANCH OF THE MILITARY.

NBC'S STEVE HANDELSMAN HAS THE LATEST FROM CAPITOL HILL. Return to index of stories...


US DEFENSE CUTS-PKG


THE U-S ARMY WOULD SHRINK TO ABOUT 440 THOUSAND SOLDIERS.FROM A PEAK OF 570 THOUSAND

AFTER THE 9/11 ATTACKS.

THE NATIONAL GUARD AND RESERVE WOULD DROP FROM 560 TO 530 THOUSAND BY 2017.

BECAUSE: THE IRAQ WAR IS OVER

THE AFGHAN WAR IS ALMOST OVER.

AND, DEFENSE SECRETARY HAGEL SAID, BUDGETS ARE TIGHTER.

"Given these realities we must now adapt, innovate, and make difficult decisions to ensure that our military remains ready and capable."

THE ANTI TANK A-10 WOULD BE RETIRED

AND THE U2 SPYPLANE

THERE'D BE MORE MONEY FOR DRONES AND CYBER WARFARE

MORE FOR SPECIAL FORCES

THE EXPENSIVE NEW F-35 SURVIVES THE CUTS

AND ALL 11 U-S CARRIER BATTLE GROUPS

THE PENTAGON COULD STILL FIGHT FAR FROM HOME AND COMPLETE ITS MAIN MISSION:

SAYS HAGEL

"Defending the homeland against all strategic threats."

BUT HAGEL WOULD CLOSE MORE BASES AND CUT BENEFITS TO MILITARY FAMILIES: THE HOUSING ALLOWANCE AND HEALTH CARE DEDUCTIBLES

FORMER PENTAGON MANPOWER CHIEF LARRY KORB PREDICTS A POLITICAL FIGHT

"The veterans lobby will object and the congressmen and women don't want to fight with the veterans."

GOVERNORS, OUTSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE, OBJECTED TO NATIONAL GUARD CUTS.

Oklahoma 1:18-1:19

"Especially during times of disasters."

Iowa 1:20-1:25

"That's why we think the reduction primarily should be in the regular army."

AND IT WOULD BE.UNDER THE NEW PLAN.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

TRACKING WARM DAYS

Our warm weather will continue through Wednesday before a chance for rain showers comes back to southwest Florida. In the meantime. relatively nice weather will continue. The forecast tonight calls for partly cloudy skies and mild 60's in the morning. Humidity will remain high tonight and after we start cooling this evening we will also be tracking fog. Some areas of fog could reduce visibility for a few hours during the morning commute tomorrow. Favored places for the heaviest fog will be inland. Tomorrow will be partly cloudy and warm with a high in the lower 80's. Rain chances stay less than 10% again on Tuesday.

The next cold front destined to move through Florida will be on Wednesday and Thursday. Skies will cloud up by the end of the day on Wednesday and a few showers could break out in the evening. On Thursday we expect cloudy weather with on/off showers. Temperatures will cool to the 70's during the day on Thursday.

The long-range forecast looks great for the upcoming weekend as sun returns and highs hit the 80's once again. Return to index of stories...
