Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has proposed a series of cuts to the country's military budget that would shrink the U.S. Army to its smallest size since before World War II. Here's a look at some of the cuts by the numbers:
440,000 to 450,000
The number of troops the Army would be cut to under Hagel's spending proposal.
The number of troops the Army had at its height after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
The number of troops currently in the U.S. Army.
The estimated cost savings over five years of eliminating the Air Force's A-10 Warthog aircraft fleet, which Hagel called a single-purpose aircraft designed for Cold War operations.
The proposed budget would impose a one-year salary freeze for general and flag officers, while increasing basic pay for military personnel by 1 percent.
The additional amount proposed for new jet engine research. Hagel wants the Navy to develop a new frigate to take the place of the Littoral Combat Ships, which are being cut.
The number of additional Marines that would be assigned to bolster security at embassies around the world. Diplomatic security has come under close scrutiny since the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012.
The number that special operations forces would be increased to (from 66,000) under Hagel's plan to better meet the tactical needs of a modern military requiring counterterrorism and crisis response.
