AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) — The Air Force Academy plans to cut a third of the sergeants who oversee military training as part of an austerity plan that will cut 3 percent from its workforce and eliminate 10 academic majors at the school.
According to the Colorado Springs Gazette (http://tinyurl.com/l55deoa ), the academy outlined its budget plans on Monday as part of the Pentagon's 2015 budget proposal, which still has to be approved.
The academy proposals do not include a reduction in the 4,000-member cadet wing or the elimination of sports teams.
Degrees in biochemistry, environmental engineering and meteorology are among the cuts.
