In advance of the hearing, the Navy and Air Force released documents outlining the potential damage, including grounding of air wings, an extended civilian hiring freeze, elimination of permanent change of station moves in the continental U.S. for the remainder of the fiscal year, cancellation of 4th quarter Reserve drills, and munition shortfalls.
