Many citizens across the nation, are concerned that time has run out for Washington to put an end to the 2011 Budget Control Act from taking effect, which calls for $500 billion to be cut from the defense budget over the next ten years.
If it’s allowed to occur, it would take affect January 2nd if Congress does not come up with a deficit reduction plan.
It’s unclear how sequestration will impact the Fort Campbell military installation with many local soldiers and their families saying it would have a highly destructive impact if it takes effect.
Christian County Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Director and Army spouse, Kensley McLellan says sequestration is disrespectful to the men and women in uniform.
Mrs. McLellan says she hopes something can still be done in Washington before sequestration takes effect and she says such a drastic move is unnecessary.
In an effort to show their support to the military, this summer community leaders in Christian and Montgomery Counties and surrounding areas signed a joint resolution of support to stop sequestration.
