Expect cuts in to some programs in the 2021 defense budget proposal as DOD looks for ways to trim spending in some areas to find priorities in the National Defense Strategy, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said this week.
As Army secretary, Esper made it a priority to trim spending, a process the Air Force is also working on.
“All the services need to go through this so we can focus on the National Defense Strategy and…get rid of legacy programs and activities and pivot toward the future,” Esper told reporters Monday, according to Defense One.
