When Budget Cuts Go Wrong

Let’s face it – sometimes you just need a good laugh, especially in this line of work! Whether you’re an E-1 or an officer, budget cuts have a way of affecting everyone in the service. Below we’ve compiled some of the most telling examples of military budget cuts ever photographed. Enjoy!

When budget cuts hit, you’ll just have to do more with less.
