General: Furloughs just a part

FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. -- The civilian furloughs have been announced, but more impacts from the $45 billion in sequestration cuts to the Department of Defense could soon hit Eglin Air Force Base in Northwest Florida. That's according to Brig. Gen. David Harris, commander of the 96th Test Wing. He was guest speaker at Wednesday's lunch meeting of the Rotary Club of Fort Walton Beach.
