Description
 
Senior Dept. of Defense (DOD) leaders have invoked the specter of a ńˇýhollow forceńˇŁ to describe what could happen to the U.S. Armed Forces if significant cuts to the defense budget are enacted. While some Members and staff might be familiar with the ńˇýhollow forceńˇŁ and its causes, newer Members and staff might not have a similar understanding of the conditions that led to the ńˇýhollow forceńˇŁ and what actions were taken to improve the condition of the U.S. Armed Forces. After a several years of rapid growth in defense budgets, measures to reduce federal budget deficits have led to projections of a substantial decline in military spending over the next decade. As a result of limits on discretionary spending in the Budget Control Act of 2011, DOD is considering how to absorb a reduction of $450 billion to $500 billion in planned programs through FY2021. Historically, there were two periods ńˇţ post-Vietnam and again in the 1990s ńˇţ when the term ńˇýhollow forceńˇŁ was used to describe the U.S. armed forces. Contents of this report: Significance for Congress; Background of the Hollow Force; Current References to Hollow Forces; Potential Issues for Congress. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
