The Pentagon is apparently planning to "shrink" the number of soldiers in US Army.

According to the New York Times, Defense Secretary Hagel wants to reduce Army forces to their lowest level since before the US entered World War II.

And also wants to eliminate an entire class of Air Force attack jets.

Details of the proposed Pentagon budget will be released later today and must be approved by Congress.
