Army takes troop level and spending cuts in Biden budget

 The Army faces cuts to end strength and top line funding in President Joe Biden’s fiscal year 2022 budget request, according to documents released Friday.

“The reduction for the Army reflects the president’s decision to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the beginning of fiscal year [2022],” said Anne McAndrew, acting Defense Department comptroller, in a media briefing Friday afternoon.

All three components of the total Army face small personnel cuts, totaling 1,700 troops. The service’s overall spending will decline from its current fiscal 2021 authorization of $176.6 billion to $173 billion if enacted — a $3.6 billion decrease.

The cuts will not impact force structure, said Maj. Gen. Paul Chamberlain, director of Army budget, on Friday afternoon.

The end strength reductions would come over the strenuous objections of Army Chief of Staff Gen. James C. McConville, who has previously expressed grave concern over the size of the force.
