Members of the military leave after a United States Joint Forces Command Disestablishment Ceremony held on the parking lot of JFCOM in Suffolk,Va. The Defense Department formally disbanded one of its military headquarters on Thursday in an effort to eliminate bureaucracy and cut costs. U.S. Joint Forces Command was responsible for training troops from all services to work together for specific missions and had a $1 billion budget. The command had employed about 5,700 military and civilian personnel in Virginia, Nevada and Florida, with the bulk of those working at its headquarters in southeast Virginia.
