The Air Force has told the major commands that it's time to start a series of cost-savings measures in case Congress allows massive cuts to defense spending to take place and fails to pass an appropriations bill.

What guidance are you getting from your command on how to save money? Have you been told to cut back on coffee, paper clips and other non-essential supplies? Are any repairs on hold? Has your TDY or PCS move been cancelled? And are you seeing flying hours cut?

Please email reporter"> from reader">Jeff Schogol.
