VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - America's elite warriors are no match for the sequester, which some leaders say could cripple the nation's safety net.
Adm. William McRaven, in charge of U.S. Special Operations Command, said the sequester will have a "dramatic impact on current and future missions of the Special Operations Command."
All armed forces contribute to the Special Operations Command and are looking at serious cutbacks that will impact their ability to conduct special operations.
"Obviously we've got this perfect storm with the continuing resolution and sequestration," McRaven said. "I'm already cutting 60 percent of my flying hours back in CONUS. I'm reducing also some of my deployments... about 20 percent of my deployments going forward."
