WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- Two members of Michigan's congressional delegation have pledged to challenge recent cuts by the Department of Defense.

Monday, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel announced cuts that would eliminate a fleet of aircraft critical to Selfridge Air National Guard Base in Harrison Township.  U.S. Representative Candice Miller and Senator Carl Levin have rejected the Secretary's plan to retire the entire A-10 fleet and say they plan to challenge the proposal.

Hagel's 2015 budget request calls for 3.5-billion dollars in savings over five years by eliminating the A-10 fleet.
