Army Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond Odierno last week warned that soldiers deployed to Afghanistan next year may see their war tours extended because budget cuts will drastically limit training for brigades who have to replace them.

Soldiers deployed to Afghanistan next year may see their war tours extended because budget cuts will drastically limit training for brigades who have to replace them, the top Army general said Friday. Odierno said the military will be able to fund training and operations for combat units in Afghanistan now and for those deploying in the summer and fall. But he says there will be delays in training for those deploying in 2014. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File)
