Reductions in force hit the brass

Washington Post:
With the Iraq war over and troops in Afghanistan on their way home, the U.S. military is getting down to brass tacks: culling generals and admirals from its top-heavy ranks.
Pentagon officials said they have eliminated 27 jobs for generals and admirals since March, the first time the Defense Department has imposed such a reduction since the aftermath of the Cold War, when the collapse of the Soviet Union prompted the military to downsize.
... 
They are looking for an overall 10 percent reduction in the upper ranks.  I don't they they save that much from the move because they are already on tap for retirement pay for this group.
