Deficit-cutting negotiations on Capitol Hill may have a big impact on the future of military retirement packages.

Dov Zakheim, former undersecretary of defense (comptroller), says those Hill negotiations are setting up a discussion about retirement that could affect recruiting and retention.

Dov Zakheim’s Top 3 for 2013
  1. Major push for military retirement reform
  2. Change in the orientation of the Army — the issue is whether it will back too far away from counterinsurgency (as it did in Vietnam)
  3. Major effort to reform defense acquisition

    * All three trends driven by additional budget cuts, even if there is no sequester.
