WASHINGTON -- More soldiers could learn while in Afghanistan that they are being forced out of the military, the Army's top officer said Friday.
Army chief of staff Gen. Ray Odierno discussed the cuts with reporters Friday at a breakfast in Washington.
The notifications, part of an effort to rapidly shrink the size of the ground forces, have drawn heavy criticism from lawmakers. In June, more than 1,100 Army captains were notified that their military careers would soon end. It was later revealed that 48 were serving in Afghanistan when they were informed that they were getting the ax.
