Rowell is concerned about the possibility of cuts that could chip away at military health insurance, pensions and other services long considered untouchable. If Congress and President Barack Obama don't agree on spending cuts by Jan. 1, a package of across-the-board cuts would take effect that would hit the military heavily. (AP Photo/Chuck Burton)
