The Army's No. 2 general says the budget impasse in Washington is forcing cuts in the number of troops and elimination of duplicative efforts.
Gen. John Campbell says he tells soldiers they will be in a smaller Army in the future. But the four-star says he wants to make sure it remains the best trained military in the world.
Campbell spoke with The Associated Press as he completed a tour of Army installations in New Jersey, New York, Kentucky and South Carolina.
The vice chief of staff of the Army says the budget belt-tightening is an opportunity. Campbell says the service must become more efficient and eliminate unnecessary programs.
During a visit to Fort Jackson, the four-star general says the post will remain the Army's center of anti-suicide training.
