    This breaks my heart and the majority are within 5 years of retiring . They are trying to let them go so they do not have to pay the retirement. Oh and they will give the sailors 6 months of insurance and 6 months of severance pay but the pay may have to be paid back. Now thats crazy!!!Navy family unhappy with layoffs | News - Home

    Obama already killed the manned space program, now this, and he says he needs one more term to "finish the job"

    Aggression? Would be no more acceptable than any other workplace.

    I loathe the idea of employee layoffs especially so close to retirement.

    So Obama should be a socialist in this case and intentionally waste money on unneeded government personnel? This is what shrinking the government looks like on a personal level.

    Difference here? The military is mandated by the US Constitution.

    Now with so much unrest in the world, Islamists licking thier chops to inflict severe damage on us and our liberty is no time to be dialing back on the Military.

    The military is NOT a run-of-the -mill job. If you had a lick of sense? You wouldn't have posted what you did.

    That is worse than bad. They were depending on that retirement. I hope the first thing they do is sign up for unemployment insurance. And talk to the press.
