Get Used to Tight DOD Budgets, Air Force Suspends Security Checks, Incentivize Vet Hiring


Rick Rogers – Military Headline News



In case you were wondering this whole tight military budget thing isn’t a passing fad. 

The Congressional Budget Office says the Pentagon should brace for budget cuts every year through 2021.

 The best way to land jobs for citizen-soldiers is to offer employers incentives to hire them.

That sums up the recommendations by the Reserve Officers Association.

The ROA wants the government to give businesses that hire Guardsmen and Reservists money for their health benefits, tax breaks and even cash when they deploy.

File this story under: What could possibly go wrong?

The Air Force has stopped conducting background checks on airmen with Top Secret clearances.

The suspension is a cost-cutting move connected to sequestration.

The service is supposed update Top Secret background investigations every five years for security reasons.

No word on when checks will resume.
