A shrinking U.S. Army has rolled out its proposed fiscal 2017 budget — a plan that funnels more money into readiness but cuts every other area including personnel, modernization and construction. The Army's active component takes the biggest hit to personnel compared to other services. The Army is the largest service, but its active force is scheduled to shrink from 475,000 to 460,000 — that's a 3-percent decrease, compared to the Navy's 1-percent cut to its active component. Both the Air Force and the Marine Corps have no planned cuts to their active components, according to budget documents. For more details, see this Military.com article.
