As seen on Fox and Friends

On Fox and Friends this morning, Pete Hegseth weighed in on the Defense Department's reported decision to send "pink slips" to some U.S. soldiers still on the battlefield in Afghanistan. The letters reportedly tell the soldiers that their service will no longer be needed when their current deployment ends.

Here's more from former Army Capt. Jon­athan Hendershott, writing in the New York Post:

In a stunning display of callousness, the Defense Department has announced that thousands of soldiers — many serving as commanding officers in Afghanistan — will be notified in the coming weeks that their service to the country is no longer needed.

Last week, more than 1,100 Army captains — the men and women who know best how to fight this enemy because they have experienced multiple deployments — were told they’ll be retired from the Army.

The overall news is not unexpected. The Army has ended its major operations in Iraq and is winding down in Afghanistan. Budget cuts are projected to shrink the Army from its current 520,000 troops to 440,000, the smallest size since before World War II.

What is astonishing is that the Defense Department thought it would be appropriate to notify deployed soldiers — men and women risking their lives daily in combat zones — that they’ll be laid off after their current deployment.

As one Army wife posted on MilitaryFamily.org, “On some level I knew the drawdowns were inevitable, but I guess I never expected to be simultaneously worried about a deployment to Afghanistan and a pink slip because my husband’s service is no longer needed.”

Hegseth said the letters go beyond just being bad timing, but are indicative of the misguided priorities of the Obama administration.

"Here you've got ISIS on the march in Iraq, you've got the Middle East falling apart and yet you've got an administration and a White House that's willing to send pink slips to captains, officers serving in Afghanistan. ... Now we're laying them off to save dollars because this administration wants to spend money on dependency programs here at home, but they're unwilling to preserve war-fighting capability," he said.

Steve Doocy called it "wrong on so many levels," asking "don't they deserve better than that?"
