Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced Tuesday that the Pentagon is cutting the number of planned furlough days for department civilian employees this year from 11 to six.

Hagel also said that some key squadrons are flying again and the Navy has restarted some deployments that had been on hold because of the mandated budget cuts because of savings that had been achieved elsewhere.
