It is widely recognized that the effects of the Sequester are felt most emphatically at the Pentagon and in the services. As reported by Sydney J. Freedberg Jr. at Breaking Defense, the point was driven home, yesterday, by chief of staff of the Army, General Ray Ordierno, who said:
… that only two of [the Army's] 42 combat brigades are ready for combat
And that it will be June before:
... a solid force of seven brigades [is] ready for any unexpected contingency — and that’s assuming no further budgetary disasters.
