The mobilized reserves, maybe. Although their jobs are supposed to have been preserved, but that might be problematic in the current economy. The company might not exist anymore.

But unless one is going the cut the numbers of troops, you just reposition them on stateside posts, which is where they came from in the first place.

However I fully expect The One to cut those numbers, in the face the "economic crisis", despite his initial promises to *raise* the numbers in the Army and Marines (at the expense of numbers in the Navy and Air Force) The money to pay them will be needed for "bailing out" Bami's friends and paying for the Obama Youth Corps. So he'll cut the Navy and Air Force as promised, but will not expand, and will probably cut, the numbers in the Marines and Army as well.

We are already sending B-52s to the boneyard, the latest models, which is all we have left anyway. The F-117s have been sent there as well. They are supposed to be replaced with F/A-35s and F/A-22s, but those numbers will also likely be cut. The -35 might be canceled outright.

BO has also promised to cut Future Combat Systems, and other new developments. So there will also be lots of engineers, software developers and skilled tradesmen laid off and looking for work. I might very well be one of them, as I was under The 'Toon'.
