Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey announced on Jan. 26, 2012, sweeping programmatic changes across the Defense Department resulting from the Obama Administration's new strategic defense guidance and the planned reduction of some $487 billion from the Pentagon's budget over the next 10 years.
